Many thanks to Pivot Josh Susser for his hard work co-coordinating this past weekend’s Golden Gate Ruby Conference. We also want to thank our Live Blogging team: Chad, Ryan, Zach, and David — who all did an excellent job of documenting the event. We also recorded videos of every talk, which will be posted to Talks within a week or so.
Something to be aware of if you are running your production app on EngineYard: Because of their shared disk setup, running disk intensive jobs on your staging environment may affect the performance of your production environment on the same slice. One of our teams ran into severe slowness on production due to tasks running on staging. This problem isn’t immediately apparent because of the way the EY storage system is well abstracted for each environment. Submit a ticket to EY support for more details if this is a problem for you.
Ask for Help
- Adam Milligan submitted a patch to Rails a while ago that refactored the implementation of HasOneThroughAssociation. To his severe disappointment, the patch was rejected because the Rails core “doesn’t apply refactorings.” Adam is asking for help from Pivots and friends to add their comments and support to the patch so hopefully it will be applied to the upcoming Rails 3.0.
