Spoiler: Indiana Coders took home first place with Beer Checkin. And Jeremy McAnally won the solo division with tldr.it.
Last Thursday, Jason Zanders, Corporate Vice President for the Visual Studio team at Microsoft announced that control of IronPython and IronRuby has been handed off to the open source community. This is A Good Thing™ for the community, with Miguel de Icaza and Jimmy Schementi leading these community efforts.
Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-text search engine library written in Java and you'll find it behind some of the major Internet applications out there. But, since we're in Ruby land, Java doesn't work terribly well for us unless we're in JRuby. So, this week, Ilya Grigorik wrote up a nice article covering Apache Lucene and Solr, which is, kind of, a REST wrapper for Lucene, supporting both JSON and XML requests.
What do you do if you have too little screen real estate to hold all of your windows when developing? Well, Bernerd Schaefer at HashRocket calls on the power of fg. Using the Linux fg command, he's able to switch back and forth between multiple processes without wasting space. See how he does it in his recently write up on Laptop Driven Development.
Tristan Dunn put together some code showing how you can utilize Capybara to run multiple browser sessions in your tests.

The guys at AmberBit just released GoTranslateYourself, a Rails 3 engine which allows your clients to manage your application's translations from within your application. It uses Mongo DB to interactively update your translation tables; and those changes are then immediately available to your users.
Ben Hughes recently put together a set of ActiveRecord models which codify Jazz theory. With them, you can enumerate notes of a chord or a scale, get the mode of a scale, and more. It's probably not useful for Twitter, but, if you're a music geek and a Rubyist, it's worth a look.
