One of the best books on BDD and code testing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The RSpec Book: Behaviour Driven Development with RSpec, Cucumber, and Friends (Facets of Ruby) (Paperback)
I recently read "The RSpec book" and I must say that it's one of the best technical books I've read in a long time.
It starts out with light introduction to BDD and then it keeps the reader engaged by presenting clear examples on how to use RSpec and Cucumber.
Throughout the examples they explain the philosophy of BDD and great concepts like "Red/Green/Refactor" that in my opinion should be engraved in every programmer's brain.
The chapters on Rspec Expectations and Mocks are so good that I've read them twice and the examples they provide really show why we should use mocks and stubs to isolate certain components of our code.
I really recommend this book to every programmer and even if you're not programming in Ruby you'll get a really nice overview of every aspect of BDD and the concepts behind code testing.
