In the last episode, we talked about the Ruby Summer of Code project. Thanks to several sponsors, it has already raised the target $100,000. So, that means there are twenty paid internship positions available this summer. If you're interested, get your proposal ready and submit it next week!
Recently, Alex Maccaw used the Rails 3 ActiveModel abstraction to build an ActiveRecord-like in-memory database for Ruby. You get all of the ActiveRecord goodness, such as validations, callbacks, and observers, but with none of that database headache.
Rick Olson recently wrote up his techniques for dealing with LOAD_PATHs, while using real world examples from some Sinatra apps running behind Lighthouse and Tender. Primarily, if you're a library developer (either gems or plugins), please, don't modify the Ruby load path. It's a bad idea. Just like requiring rubygems from your library. Just don't do it.
On some projects, you just can't get away from legacy code. And for some people, that legacy is more like a bad memory, taking the form of PHP. If you're in this situation, you may be interested to know that Eric Anderson recently released Rack::Legacy which allows you to run PHP (or CGI) code right along side your Rack-compatible application. No more need to modify your Apache configuration.
ubiquo is a new(er) Rails CMS Framework, which is now being deployed via Rubygems. ubiquo provides a plugin interface, internationalization, administration, access control, asynchronous job integration, and more. So, if you're in need of a CMS, you may want to give ubiquo a glance, although BE WARNED: One of the sample sites on the landing page may be NSFW!
The Ruby Hero Awards are now accepting nominations. If there is someone out there in the Ruby community that has helped you out, created some useful open source projects, written educational content, or just provided some other support in some way, maybe think about returning the favor by nominating them for an award. Six winners will be recognized and awarded at RailsConf in Baltimore later this year.
