Start Here

Welcome

Hi, I’m Jason Swett, host of The Ruby Testing Podcast and author of the upcoming book Rails Testing for Beginners.

I’m here to help Rails developers get better at writing tests. I offer the following educational resources, most of which are free:

Articles: You can find all my Rails testing articles here. Good ones to start with might include Rails Automated Testing: How to Get Started, Using Tests as a Tool to Wrangle Legacy Projects, and my Rails Testing Resource Roundup.

Free live workshops: Roughly every Tuesday at 2pm Eastern I run a live Rails testing workshop I call The Sausage Factory.

Videos: You can find a bunch of Rails testing videos on my YouTube channel.

Book: I’m working on a book called Rails Testing for Beginners. I expect the first edition to be ready in late spring 2019.

Instructor-led courses: I have an upcoming course called Learn Rails Testing in a Month.

Video micro-course: I offer a free Ruby Testing Micro-Course. This course has been started by hundreds of developers and featured in Ruby Weekly #390.

Podcast: I host The Ruby Testing Podcast, featuring such guests as Michael Hartl and Ben Orenstein. I’ve also guested on other Ruby/Rails podcasts including The 5by5 Ruby on Rails Podcast and Ruby Rogues.
