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.
