Keeping Your Application Healthy Since 2008

August 4, 2010: A couple of useful things

Book Satus

Still patching the Shoulda chapter together. Realized yesterday that Machinist is in the middle of a version 2 upgrade, which, along with some factory_girl changes probably means I have some tweaking to do in that chapter.

I haven’t run the buy links in a while. You can get the beta ebook and pre-order from Pragmatic and the book is also available from Amazon.

WindyCityRails

Early Bird pricing for WindyCityRails is scheduled to end today. I’m doing the PM tutorial on “Testing In A Legacy Environment”. Please sign up, I’d hate to talk to myself. Also watch WindyCityRails for another speaker announcement that should be coming up very soon. There’s already a great lineup, and they run a super-great conference.

Links

This is handy given what I’ve been doing this week. Christoph Olszowka has made a bash completion script for RVM commands. I wonder if it will work in my zsh shell.

Speaking of useful tips, on the off chance that anybody stumbles across this who doesn’t read John Gruber, he has a useful OS X service for opening all the URL’s in a selected text as separate Safari tabs.

Former Apple engineer Sachin Agarwal, now at Posterous, lists some things he learned about project management from his time at Apple.
