It seems like half the people on this list are writing a book on Ruby
or Rails. For all the hints I’ve seen strewn across the list I have
yet to see one that will focus on test-driven development for either
Ruby or for Rails.
If anyone is looking for a topic, please consider this. I’ve been
trying to wrap my brain around the TDD process, but its way of
thinking is still too foreign for me to be any good at it. I’ve read
Kent Beck’s TEST-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT BY EXAMPLE book. The examples are
nice and (mostly) clear but what still confuses me is the thinking
process that drives the evolution of the code from one state to
another via a set of tests (the whole red-light/green-light thing).
And if anyone is already working on a book with this as its focus,
please feel free to chime up in this thread and get yourself some
publicity. A pointer to a blog with examples or to a pre-release PDF
would be most appreciated.
