Invitation to RailsGirls

I'm helping organize RailsGirls Baltimore on 3/2 to introduce computer programming to girls and women in the Baltimore area. No prior experience is required! It's a fun day of learning new skills in a small group with a coach helping you progress through a series of exercises.

Please help me spread the word as much as possible. We'd like to have as many women attend as possible!

Details are here:

Hope to see you there!

Rspec matchers for Sidekiq

I've been writing a lot of specs lately to make sure my code properly enqueues Sidekiq jobs. I ended up duplicating a lot of code, and after reading the Rspec custom matcher documentation, I decided to DRY up the tests using some of my own matchers. The code is here in my "power tools" gem. Enjoy!

The tests end up looking like this:
  MyWorker.should have_queued_job(2)
  Collector.should have_queued_job_at(,1,23,14,00),2)
