“This class got me pumped to code the right way and learn Ruby on Rails.”
“I really appreciated having someone explain some of the more basic syntactical and conceptual elements. It was a productive and fun day, well worth it!”
My workshop in New York city was a success and great reviews are pouring in already. I interviewed Sebastian Delmont for the podcast. I also got to meet the visionary Francis Hwang and other local Rubyists at Sandobe Sushi. There are a lot of brilliant developers in New York, and I hope to visit again soon.
I’ll be in San Francisco next week to teach another Carson Workshops event. It’s a great way to learn Rails, learn about Rails, or polish your skills. Even if you are not a developer it will help you get an idea of what Rails is all about and how you can use it to the max in your business. There are still seats left, so sign up!
I’ll also be at Louie’s Bar and Grill for dinner at about 7pm on Wednesday, June 7. If any San Francisco Rubyists are free that night, come on down!
Everyone is trying to speed up their tests. I’ve wanted to try sqlite3 memory tests and finally got them working. Here are some results on my soon-to-be-retired 1 GHz iBook G4 (768 MB RAM):
|Unit Tests||57 seconds||31 seconds|
|Functional Tests||313 seconds||113 seconds|
Yes, I understand that the MacBook runs tests at this rate without extra modification. In the meantime, here’s how you can do it:
./script/plugin install memory_test_fix
test: adapter: sqlite3 database: ":memory:"
MONTHin Rough Underbelly, so I have to use MySQL for tests in that app.
