The Rails Edge: Day One The picture: tables with 8 geeks at each with laptops. Very little diversity.
Second session reviewed what has happened with Rails since 1.0. Plugins, migrations, RJS, etc. This was just what I needed because I tend to code in the 1.0 mode. It was also a review of upcoming sessions. So as the sessions continue I'm create a list of "better or required practices" that I'll post after the conference.
Instead of dinner last night I replace some "has_and_belongs_to_many" with "has_many .. :through =>". Made a few errors, but I learned. This turned out to be the perfect solution for a problem I was having.permalink ( Friday, January 26, 2007 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

The Rails Edge Conference: Expectations I'll be attending the Rails Edge Conference in Reston, Virginia for the next few days. Hopefully this will get me to move Zlides.com and GreatUncle.com into the next phases. I find that I'm stuck doing things in the Ruby on Rails 1.0 way and I think this will get me to take advantage of the new approaches, the new deployments and the new practices that version 1.2 provides. I also have a couple of "translation into code" problems that I hope to get some help with. More on that later.

New Year So Remodeling I've been working on redoing my personal homepage which was started about 10 years ago. So my web time has been spent on that and on my web applications like greatuncle.com. So expect some silence for a little while as I finish things up - not my strength. permalink ( Wednesday, January 17, 2007 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
