Dmytro Shteflyuk wrote up a great introduction to using presenters in your application.

He also covers the Cells plugin, by Nick Sutterer, which may also be useful for cleaning up more of your view's logic.
Hugo Barauna wrote up a blog post this week talking about the "dog-pile" effect. This is where your cache gets invalidated, and before you can regenerate it, you're bombarded with several requests.

Remember, Ruby5 will be released Tuesday and Friday mornings, due to your feedback for consistent, morning releases. To stay informed about and active with this podcast, we encourage you to do one of the following:
The Rails 2.3.4 release and security updates start off this Tuesday episode. We also cover Rails Magazine, memory bloat, Bullet, Fiscali, and a little bit of Ruby 1.9.
RCov and Pony, with a little bit of Hangman make for a good start. We also cover some Rails authentication options and metaprogramming in Ruby. Finally, what's new in Edge Rails and the Rails Rumble results close out this Friday episode.
Blue Ridge, FunFX and Cucumber, and unit testing your file system interactions round out today's episode - which is obviously a little test-heavy. We also talk about obeying robots.txt, Snow Leopard, and more.
Ruby Version Manager, Crondonkulous, and flag_shih_tzu are just a few of the topics covered by this Friday morning episode of Ruby5. Since the majority of listeners preferred morning releases, we're going to try out releasing new episodes on Tuesday and Friday mornings.
