You have disabled auto-rotation for stories. Re-enable?
How can you make the awesomeness of NewRelic even more... uh... awesomer? By adding metrics collection to your own code to capture the kinds of things only you would know you care about!
In this blog entry, Sean Walberg shows you how to do it. Thanks for the submission, Sean!
The BitNami Rails stack has been updated for rails 3.2. It can be deployed using a native installer, as a virtual machine or in the cloud, and includes pretty much everything you'd want in a Rails environment except for a butler to go run your errands while you're in the zone.
DCI has become a hot topic in Rails, largely because some of the language features in Ruby make it a compelling choice for code organization. In this article, Mike Pack describes how DCI isn't just a code organization choice, but goes all the way into influencing the 'mental model' your users have of the application. He also talks about performance considerations, which has been absent from most of the DCI discussions to date.
Sometime between travellng the world to speak at conferences and teaching newcomers to be Ruby Ninjas, Jeff Casimir has found the time to release Draper 1.1. This release includes performance tweaks and compatibility with CanCan, among other stuff.
business_time is an ActiveSupport add-on that gives you business -time helper methods such as "4.business_days.from_now".
This release adds configurable week start and end (if you're a baker, or live in the middle East, for instance), as well as several other small pullup requests. Further, Chris Wise shared with us an article he wrote showing how to integrate business_time with the holidays gem, so business_time automatically skips over holidays when doing calculations.
Mike Fogus implemented Lisp in 40 lines of Ruby code, then went back and tweaked it to be 32 lines. And desipte Arild's comment in the audio, its not like an 'obfuscated C' contest either.
Take 5 minutes, peruse the code, and stretch your mind a bit. You might just learn a thing or two about Ruby while you're at it!
If you missed it in your twitter stream this week, go watch it right now. ~4 minutes of standup-at-the-command-line only a developer could love.
This was supposed to be a closing shoutout to friend-of-the-show Jim Gay who is hosting an Unconference in Arlington, VA next month. The next story was added so this got bumped into the main story lineup.
Well, maybe not quite 'hidden', but definitely the not-quite-talked-about features that will have an impact on your day to day development.
Ruby5 is released Tuesday and Friday mornings. To stay informed about and active with this podcast, we encourage you to do one of the following:
Rails 3.2 has barely arrived that Rails Tutorial teleports from the future. Meanwhile we get a nifty console for Test Unit, and millions of links become Google buddies thanks to sitemap_generator.
