2010-11-01 13:53:32 utc codebeaker hi all
2010-11-01 13:53:54 utc tosch_le hi codebeaker!
2010-11-01 13:54:08 utc codebeaker tosch_le: Hey, whats up!
2010-11-01 13:54:22 utc codebeaker I *finally* read up on Ruote… and it makes sense finally :)
2010-11-01 13:54:32 utc tosch_le :-) great!
2010-11-01 13:55:43 utc codebeaker I was hoping to catch outoftime, and see how the workflow-for-new-users worked out… that didn't *seeeeemm* like a great fit, since there aren't many actors in that scenario… but I'd love to know
2010-11-01 13:55:53 utc codebeaker … hey, I have to fly outta the house, can I ping you when I get back?
2010-11-01 13:55:56 utc codebeaker (< 30 mins)
2010-11-01 13:56:43 utc tosch_le i'm here until 16:00 (UTC+0100)
2010-11-01 13:57:20 utc codebeaker then I might miss you :)
2010-11-01 13:57:24 utc codebeaker (Germany, right ?)
2010-11-01 13:57:25 utc tosch_le we'll try
2010-11-01 13:57:28 utc tosch_le right
2010-11-01 13:58:15 utc tosch_le but hey, there's always the mailing list which awaits your questions ;-)
2010-11-01 13:58:28 utc codebeaker haha, of course, but I don't have concrete questions, more like general questions…
2010-11-01 13:58:39 utc codebeaker things that warrant a discussion about the "right way" to do something…
2010-11-01 13:58:44 utc codebeaker example how do you test your engine ?
2010-11-01 13:59:53 utc tosch_le rspec
2010-11-01 14:00:16 utc tosch_le or cucumber. there is ruote-cukes, but it's not really finished
2010-11-01 14:01:42 utc tosch_le the question is: what part do you wanna test? participants are easy with rspec, complete workflows are a bit more advanced
2010-11-01 14:02:43 utc codebeaker yeah, I dunno - I guess checking what state a workflow ("set up your account") is at…
2010-11-01 14:02:51 utc codebeaker and, advancing it by triggering actions
2010-11-01 14:03:23 utc codebeaker for example there's three main actions to an "Account" in my app… there's populating your "library" - using the desktop client, and recommending it to your friends ( go awesome social web!)
2010-11-01 14:03:41 utc codebeaker they don't go in any order, but your account is still in "nag mode" until you do all three
2010-11-01 14:03:49 utc tosch_le general questions are allowed on the ml, too and in fact we're happy about them as we seen where the need for more docs is greatest
2010-11-01 14:03:57 utc codebeaker ok, good to know :-D
2010-11-01 14:04:06 utc codebeaker so… imma fly out - new contract to sign today, which is awesome :-D
2010-11-01 14:04:12 utc codebeaker part time job, so I can focus on my own project :-D
2010-11-01 14:04:15 utc codebeaker epic, epic win
2010-11-01 14:04:17 utc tosch_le good luck!
