  • Taming Chaotic Specs: RSpec Design Patterns [WORKSHOP]

    by Adam Cuppy

    Don’t you hate when testing takes 3x as long because your specs are hard to understand? Or when testing conditional permutation leads to a ton of duplication? Following a few simple patterns, you can easily take a bloated spec and make it readable, DRY and simple to extend. This workshop is a refactor kata. We will take a bloated sample spec and refactor it to something manageable, readable and concise.

  • Secrets of a World Memory Champion

    by Chris Hunt

    You don't have a bad memory, you were just never taught how to use it. We are going to practice several powerful memory techniques that have been perfected by memory contest champions over the last hundred years. By the end of this talk, you will know how to quickly memorize a foreign language, driving directions, phone conversations, the entire Chuck Norris filmography, your friend's credit card number, a shuffled deck of playing cards, and the name of every person you meet at RailsConf.
