A total of seven folks dropped by the July meeting of NHRuby.org, and were treated to a live coding session by Nick Plante and Scott Garman to create a Rails-based web application for tracking proposed meeting topics.
Models were created, database migrations were demonstrated, RESTful design was explained and used throughout, and the process for debugging problems as they inevitably cropped up was shown. A good time was had by all! While we managed to get the application working with a user account system and the ability to save topics, the voting system has yet to be added. So next month, we will continue this process by adding a spiffy AJAX-enabled "1 to 5 star" voting system for the proposed meeting topics. We will also demonstrate how to write unit, functional, and integration tests for this Rails application (which has yet to be named). Don't worry if you didn't attend the July meeting - we'll give a quick overview of the app at the start of the August meeting and it shouldn't be difficult to follow along. http://wiki.nhruby.org Cheers, Scott -- Scott Garman sgarman at zenlinux dot com _______________________________________________ gnhlug-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnhlug.org/mailman/listinfo/gnhlug-discuss/
