SUSE Studio builds:
Last week, the Rubinius team released Rubinius version 1.1 marking this the first new feature release since 1.0. Not only does this contain new features, but also several bug fixes, speed ups, and is more stable. If you're using Rubinius or are an interested bystander, you should download it and update.
Over on the RubyLearning blog, David Black recently wrote a guest post describing how "Almost everything [in Ruby] is an object." If you want to know more about your favorite language, this article is worth a few minutes of your time.
Last week, we mentioned the Terminitor gem. But sadly, because it uses AppleScript, it was OS X, only. Well, later that week, Jon Druse created Screeninator, an alternative to Terminitor which uses the GNU Screen application to manage multiple shell instances within the same window. This, again, is useful if you use a lot of sessions when deep in development.
Recently, Corey Donohoe - the creator of Homebrew - released a new install package called Cinderella. Just like Homebrew, it's specifically written for OS X. But, unlike Homebrew, it's somewhat opinionated and utilizes Chef recipes to build up your development machine from only having XCode to now sporting MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, memcached, MongoDB, Ruby, Python, node.js, and Erlang. Better yet, those installs are isolated for easy updates and removals.
Brian Morearty dropped us a line this week to let us know about a blog article he wrote recently called, "Ruby on Rails BedTime Stories." The main take away is that helper objects can often clean up your code, isolate interests, and clarify your intent. Specifically, he uses the Rails fragment cache mechanism as an example to illustrate his point.
Harri Kauhanen just posted a video where he walks through using Heroku, MongoHQ, Google Font Directory, Pusher, and Browser Mob to demonstrate the power of Rails in the cloud. There may be some areas of your application(s) that aren't your core competency, and in these cases, its often better to offload those tasks to someone who can do it better and cheaper.
Videos were recently posted from the Windy City Rails conference, so if you're in need of some new Rails learning materials, you should check them out. You'll find Yehuda Katz, Jake Scruggs, Ryan Singer, and Nick Gauthier, among others, all giving great talks on really interesting subjects.
We had 5 new job postings last week on Top Ruby Jobs. Wildfire Interactive is looking for a Ruby developer in Palo Alto, California. Context optional needs a Facebook Applicaiton developer in San Francisco, AutoRevo is needs a Rails developer anywhere (Remote), Viviti needs a Ruby& Rails developer in British Columbia, Canada, and HTC needs a Rails developer in Taiwan or Seattle.
You can read more about each of these jobs or post your own job posting at Top Ruby Jobs.
