Presenting at RailsConf 2008

I’m going to be presenting at RailsConf 2008 on RSpec’s Story Runner. I’ll be talking about how I approach writing for the Story Runner and address several related issues including:

  • plain text stories vs pure Ruby (when is which appropriate?)

  • extending the RailsStory with custom helpers

  • testing forms using webrat within the Story Runner

  • finding a balance of domain and UI scenarios

  • duplication between stories/scenarios and model/view/controller/helper examples

That’s probably already more than I can cover fairly in a 45 minute presentation, but feel free to make other suggestions if you have them.

See you in Portland!
