Today morning, I watched a keynote talk given by GitHub CEO and co-founder Chris Wanstrath. I was impressed. Here are his quotes in the talk.
 
'Great coders relentlessly iterate. Best coders relentlessly iterate with other people’
'It's not about fancier code, fancier tests. It's about fancier communication.'
'We iterate on software we build, we should also iterate on how we build it'
'Focus on your development workflow and collaboration, less on the tools or technology. It's about people.'
'Workflow of future: Getting shit done. Shipping awesome software.'
'It's not about software, its about people'
"It's not about tools, it's not about GitHub, it's about way people communicate with each other.

Notes on teaching both test/unit and RSpec to new Ruby developers

@tenderlove asked "Is it good to teach RSpec (vs t/u) to people who are totally new to Ruby?" I have experience suggesting that it is a good thing; after a short back and forth, it seemed useful to write it up in detail.

Background

This goes back several years, to when I was the primary Ruby/Rails trainer for Relevance from 2006-2009. I'm guessing that worked out to probably 6-8 classes a year during those years. Since then, RSpec has changed a fair amount (with the addition of expect) and test/unit has changed radically (it has an entirely new implementation, minitest, that avoids some of the inconsistencies that made test/unit a bit confusing during the time I'm writing about here).

I started out as an RSpec skeptic. I've never been afraid of what a lot of people denigrate as "magic" in Ruby libraries … to me, if you take the trouble to understand it, that stuff's just pr
