    If there's overflow, perhaps paring sessions on google hangout? I'd love to work through hartl's book with a group!

    Is anyone else having an issue with remember_token / chapter 8 ?

    I'm unable to update this db column in rails?
    Result of DB migration
    ==[masked] AddRememberTokenToUsers: migrating ==========================
    -- add_column(:users, :remember_token, :string)
    -- add_index(:users, :remember_token)
    ==[masked] AddRememberTokenToUsers: migrated [masked]s) =================

    I've tried to update it from rails console - but remember_token is nil after both a direct assignment as well as after update_attributes

    user.remember_token = User.digest('asdasd')

    irb(main):067:0* user
    => #<User id: 1, name: "Test", email: "[masked]", created_at: "[masked]:52:02", updated_at: "[masked]:52:02", p
    assword_digest: "$2a$1....", remember_token: nil>

    user.update_attributes(name: "Yahoo", remember_token: "will this get saved")
    irb(main):073:0* user
    => #<User id: 1, name: "Yahoo", email: "[masked]", .... remember_token: nil>

    Hi, I wish I would have found this group at the beginning! I went through Micheal Hartl's book a year or two ago. I may be stuck at the office late on Wednesday but if not I would like to at least 'observe' the group. I mostly work with javascript and it's derivatives but I've been thinking about getting back into Rails and this might be the inspiration I need!

    Hi Angela
    In the last meeting Felicia said she might look for a different location for the following meet, so she might not know herself ATM.
    hint: If it's on the same location, prepare to take a bus going west in the isle of Manhattan :)
