This month, get your match on with a double feature on RSpec's custom matchers! Stephen Prater will show us how to get our custom matchers working and then Robb Shecter will take it to the cloud in a presentation on testing web app configurations.

Stephen Prater - Custom Matchers for Fun, Profit, and World Domination

If you're only using RSpec's built-in matchers, you're missing out on an opportunity to create more robust and expressive specs. Using custom matchers, you can take full advantage of the framework's capabilities.

Robb Shecter - RSpec in the Cloud: Using custom RSpec matchers to manage web app configurations

Custom matchers are one of the most powerful descriptive features of the RSpec API. In this talk, Robb Shecter will show how to use them in a novel context: Testing live web application configurations.
