Wow, you were at NYC.rb too? Too bad I didn’t know. It would have been cool to meet you in person.
Here are the notes I took at the talk. The italicized bullets below summarize information in the slides; the other bullets add detail beyond the slides:
I was not, no, I live in Chicago (and am happy to meet more Lobsters folks).
I know mutant’s author Markus Schirp from the research that went into my talk. I noticed he wrote several libraries I used or liked the style of (anima, vanguard, concord) and I have been attempting to draft him into my prospiracy (it’s like a conspiracy, but for public good) to improve the state of Ruby. He retweeted a link to the slides.
Thanks for sharing your notes, those are great
Seems like slides.com would warrant the slides tag. ;)
Don’t tell @jcs or I’ll have to look at the story guidelines for another five days.
Does Mutant support Minitest yet? Looks like 330 is still open and README says “The minitest integration is still in the works.” :/
I think the biggest barrier to minitest support is lack of people willing to help test that pull request against their own projects. It’s not as easy in minitest as rspec to associate a test with the class or method it is intended to cover. A cover declaration needs to be added to a test so mutant knows what tests to re-run after it mutates some code.
