Fast Tests in Ruby on Rails
SYS-CON Media (press release)
On Ruby 1.8.7 inserting records through ActiveRecord was really slow. Especially in loops, repeatedly called setup methods, or factories.

A Study of Future Trends and Predictions by Futurist Thomas Frey » Trimming the Fat – Introducing the Lean Micro-College Model for Education | Ruby on Rails | Scoop.it

Last year the DaVinci Institute launched a computer programmer training school, DaVinci Coders, and one of the key people we tapped to be one of our world-class instructors was Jason Noble. On Friday I attended a talk given by Jason at the Rocky Mountain Ruby Conference in Boulder, Colorado titled “From Junior Engineer to Productive Engineer.”

DaVinci Coders is an 11-week, beginner-based training in Ruby on Rails, patterned after the successful Chicago-based school, Code Academy (later renamed The Starter League).

Is Angular.js or Ember.js the better choice for Javascript frameworks?

Is Angular.js or Ember.js the better choice for Javascript frameworks? | Ruby on Rails | Scoop.it

Tom Dale's answer: As one of the authors of Ember.js, I frequently get asked: "Should I use Angular or Ember?"
I think the answer to that question has a lot more to do with what kind of application are you building?

 

While there are a few superficial similarities—they both use bindings and are more helpful for writing web applications than, for example, Backbone.js—they quickly depart from one another in how they expect you to approach building apps.

We want developers to be able to build ambitious web apps that are competitive with those native apps. To do that, they need both sophisticated tools and the right vocabulary of concepts to help them communicate and collaborate.

With Ember.js, we've spent a lot of time borrowing liberally from concepts introduced by native application frameworks like Cocoa. When we felt those concepts were more hindrance than help—or didn't fit within the unique constraints of the web—we turned to other popular open source projects like Ruby on Rails and Backbone.js for inspiration.

Ember.js, therefore, is a synthesis of the powerful tools of our native forebears with the lightweight sensibilities of the modern web.
