I'm back on Ruby-ish stuff this week. The work I'm doing has a big SOAP component. The built-in Ruby SOAP library does quite well for my needs. It basically kicks the Python equivalent, ZSI, around the block.

Not that SOAP is the only web service in town but, for my projects, I have to use it because the upstream providers only offer SOAP.

Only a few more days until the season premiere of Lost! Yay!!!!

Test driven development

Well, I have been off on a major project that uses Python. Man, I love that language.

What has been great with this project is that I finally have enough comfort and experience with testing that I am naturally doing test-driven development. I don't feel good about my code unless I have reasonable tests in place.
