Rails API Testing Best Practices Jump to Story

Last week Matthew Lehner wrote up a nice blog post about how to get started testing your api's using rspec and rack::test. It's a really well written and easy to understand post that goes into not only the How but the Why. I love articles like this that go over how to get started following a best practice. It might seem like second nature to an experienced developer but this is pure gold to junior developers looking to hone their craft.
