RSpec for dummies screencast?

Does anyone know of any RSpec screencasts for dummies, like me :slight_smile:
I have a Java background, but I have never written a java test in my
life. I’ve never learned about TDD or BDD so I’m totally blank on
everything that has anything to do with testing and stuff.

Where should I start?!? :wink:

I have not viewed them but peepcode.com has several rspec screencasts
for
sale ($9). Geoffrey’s video’s are normally really good and you can check
out
a preview for each one at his site.

I haven’t come across any free ones available on the net

Blessings,

Jeff

Are they current? The 1.0.8 version seems to have changed things from
1.0.5. If the videos on peepcode.com are based on 1.0.5, I’d hesitate
to use them.

I have both peepcode rSpec screencasts. From memory, 1.0.5 is used in
part one, and 1.0.8 in part 2. Geoffrey mentions how to upgrade and some
of the changes in part 2. Best to contact him directly for more details,
as mentioned.

The screencasts are great by the way,

I agree, things have changed frequently in rspec. You’d have to ask
Geoffrey
for sure which version he used.

The only thing I know is that these are fairly recently developed and I
believe he is even still working on part 3, but I don’t know which
version
he used for these.

From what I have seen, the changes to rspec seem to mostly be in the
form of
using different key words for the DSL and config options. So if you know
what these changes are (using the release notes) you can simply use the
proper 1.0.8 keywords (it is the same concepts), but I agree it is
better if
it’s just using the latest version (much less work for you to do).

Best thing to do is email Geoffrey and find out what version.

Blessings,

Jeff

Even for a total newb like me?

Meaning that, I watch the casts, and walk away with a Eureka! feeling
about application speccing and testing? ;o)
