The Ruby Testing Podcast: Refactoring Legacy Projects with John Cech
Reading time: Less than a minute
Our team at Planet Argon got in touch with Jason Swett, host of The Ruby Testing Podcast, after discovering his first few podcasts on the realm of Ruby testing. He's met with developers working in different areas of Ruby to talk about their experience and thoughts about the testing space. In this episode, one of our Ruby on Rails developers, talks about testing specifically within legacy Rails applications.
Most of our client projects are inherited, so working with tests tends to be a different experience than building a new application from scratch. We're sometimes beginning work on projects that have minimal test coverage and have to consciously build that out as we continue to maintain and improve apps. John and Jason talk about prioritizing the building of tests alongside new features, working with clients, and more.
