RailsCore Update: Feature Patches

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

Recently, Railscore has made a decision to ignore feature-requests without patches attached to them on the Rails Trac (http://dev.rubyonrails.org). The ticket system was being bombarded with “Hey, you know what might be cool?” and the problem is that people weren’t getting the backing of developers to talk about the issue and create a *solution*.
The whole […]

Conditions as hash!

Sunday, May 21st, 2006

My very first full Rails patch!
http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/5143

This adds a third type accepted into the conditions of a find, and that is an hash of attribute/value pairs. The values passed in this way are delt with as equality functions with the SQL AND operator.For instance:
Person.find(:all,
:conditions => { :last_name => “Catlin”, :status => 1 },
:limit => 2)

Web Quality Manifesto

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Pete has posted an article called “Great Browser Expectations” about the expectations given by users and browsers when it comes to designing website.
One thing I hear over and over from other software designers is “You’re good, why aren’t you doing ‘real’ coding?” To me, that is an absurd comment. The code that I write has […]

DemoCamp Roundup!

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Last night was TorDemoCamp5 (they aren’t ones for brevity).
Pete from Unspace made a demo of their releaseme.ca livesearch feature (very cool!) and their datagrid. Datagrid basically lets you…. well, go here and see http://www.unspace.ca/datagrid … So you can edit information live in a table and have it automatically update as you leave the field. Anyhow, […]

I’m excited to really get […]

Overpriced Movies.

Friday, April 14th, 2006

So, when I lived in New York, I could deal with $10 a ticket in Manhattan. I mean, it is Manhattan and it was only the biggest theatres in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
However, nearly every theatre in Toronto is $12 dollars. Even ones that are out of downtown center. It […]
