Episode #74

May 7, 2010

Wynn Netherland joins Gregg live from Red Dirt Ruby Conference, where we get Analytical about doing test driven sysadmin with my Babushka, additing missing test helper...


Babushka - Test Driven Sysadmin

Similar to chef, Babushka gives you a the ability to install and configure systems, but in a more test driven format. With Babushka you simply write “deps” or dependencies which first include a test to see if a dependency is satisfied, then what to run if it hasn’t been satisfied. It could be something as simple as installing Textmate on your mac or deploying a full Rails stack. If you're a sysadmin type, the screencast on the front page is definitely worth a watch.
