I want to be clear about RSpec

Can you say the easiest tutorial/guidance to learn RSpec?
Actually I’m reading ‘The RSpec Book’, there are two things explained
‘RSpec’ and ‘Cucumber’.

  1. Should I learn both of these for testing?
  2. What is the forum to RSpec?
  3. What’s the first to write, .rspec or .rb?

A while back, someone wrote something I found very insightful and
useful, to the effect of: don’t think of Cucumber as a testing tool,
but rather a collaboration tool. Having tested many projects with
and without it, I’ve formed my opinion:

If you have a non-technical stakeholder who wants to get involved in
reading, and maybe even writing, the actual tests themselves (not a
summary, report, translation, etc.), then Cucumber is an excellent
tool to let them do so, at the top layer (don’t let them at the step
definitions!). However, in the other 99.999% of cases, it’s just
not worth the hassles.

  1. What’s the first to write, .rspec or .rb?

RSpec tests are often also .rb files. Or do you mean test-code versus
production-code? That’s a whole 'nother argument, bringing up
Test-First vs. TDD vs. BDD vs. ATDD. It’s enough to give you ADD!
