Parallel Testing](http://)

Test’s performance is finally going to be improved. Now you can use cores to your advantage of running big tests much faster. Each testing worker runs in its own thread - it should be reflected in the CPU monitor. Thanks to Eileen Unchiselled and Aaron Patterson, parallel-testing will land in the upcoming, final version of Ruby on Rails framework. As you probably already know, the way of implementing tests is very important. We try to implement as many suitable tests as we can. It’s great news for us as more tests will no longer have that much of an impact on the execution time

The team behind the loader claims that it is thread-safe and matches Ruby’s semantics for constants. Read More Points onRuby On Rails Course
