Episode #8

September 8, 2009

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.


Dates in Ruby 1.9

Well, if you're running Ruby 1.9 and can't get a date, it may be because 1.9 is mixing things up a little bit. In Ruby 1.8 the default format followed the US format of month-day-year, however in 1.9, it's taken the European (and most everywhere else) approach of day-month-year. Taylor Redden wrote up a short article on how to monkey patch Rails to revert back to the familiar Ruby 1.8 format.
