I'm Enjoying Ruby on Rails and BDD

Nothing beats writing tests first with a truly integrated framework like Rails.  Steak and Jasmine make it practical, even if they have their oddities. FactoryGirl, I'm not so sure about, but once it is set up it seems to be pretty reliable.

Done correctly, things just work. Done incorrectly, especially with FactoryGirl, side-effects can really clobber you and steal precious development hours away.
