Launching Soon

Last week, Satish Chauhan created and released a Rails plugin called Launching Soon which makes the process of creating that initial launch page for a new web app as painless as possible.

Episode #9

OpenID, Presenters and Cells, git-deploy, and the dog-pile effect are just some of the topics covered in this Friday morning episode. RubyConf also made the list, although it probably shouldn't since they rejected us.

Episode #8

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.

Episode #7

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.

Episode #6

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.
