Minitest (docs.seattlerb.org/minitest/), despite its size and simplicity, is an oft-misunderstood toolset. Sandi Metz and cohort have given fantastic talks on the process of testing and what to test. This talk will focus on the testing tools themselves. Not just how to use them, but how they’re made, how they work, and what we’ve done to make them cleaner, easier to use, and easier to extend to your needs. I’ll talk about my minitest, Mike Moore’s minitest-rails, and Aaron Patterson’s minitest integration changes to rails itself.
Ryan Davis (twitter.com/the_zenspider) created minitest. He has been using Ruby since 2000 and is a founding member of the Seattle Ruby Brigade, the first and foremost ruby brigade in the world. In ruby/rails, he has worked on developer productivity and test automation tools such as heckle, hoe, ruby_parser, ruby2c, ruby2ruby, rubyinline, zentest, minitest, and many more.
