LRUG Mocking Talk

I did a presentation at the LRUG meeting last night. The title of the talk was An Introduction to Mocking in Ruby. I’m not big on public speaking so I found the whole thing a bit daunting, so thanks to everyone for being so friendly.

In retrospect I think I spent too much time on preparing the slides and not enough time practicing it. The fact that hadn’t read the whole thing through in one go meant I had no idea how long it would be. Inevitably I ended up over-running which curtailed Tom Stuart’s excellent presentation on RSpec. I felt particularly bad because he was obviously a much better presenter than me.

I hope to make my slides available at some point – this should fairly easy, because I used Paul’s excellent mashup of the S5 slide show system with Textile and Syntax.
