I have never seen you posting on this list but I am quite honored to
read from you, funnily you are the only person on this list I have
ever seen (an old Google rspec podcast, cool stuff).
And no, I am not asking for photos of anybody, the age, location,
business and background stuff is very interesting already :).

Cheers

Mostly because I never got around to signing up until today :frowning:

I’m making a point of getting more active in the ruby as well as
rails communities.

Glad you enjoyed it

If it is “Beyond Test Driven Development: Behaviour Driven Development”
lets just say that I agree wholeheartedly and recommend it to anyone
curious about BDD.
You did a great job describing and making clear the distractions coming
from classic TDD tools that I only felt intuitively.

Welcome to the list :slight_smile:
