Thursday Lunch

We meet in University of Iowa ITS Room #2961 in the Old Capitol Mall.

We normally give short talks for other Rubyists in the community.  Sometimes they're longer if someone has something to present.  We've been doing 5 minute lightning talks recently, too.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments and suggestions on the Control API that I presented. It's very appreciated.

    Here's a link to the GitHub project; my apologies for not having a copy of it on the machine that I brought along.

    I'm working on a new Rails 4 project, so I can share some stuff I'm learning working on that.

    Other potential topics in Ruby news:

    * Rails 4.0.1 is out, and (hopefully) eases the transition from 3.2.x
    * FFI drama
    * OSX 10.9 Mavericks ships with Ruby 2.0 (no more 1.8.7!)
    * CanCan alternatives for Rails 4.0? (we've looked a little at Pundit)

    I also released a new version of Maid recently, if anyone wants to hear about that.

    I'm planning on discussing our recent experimentation with "page objects" in acceptance testing.

    Also, as I mentioned before, we're working on a (tiny) Continuity Control API project. I'd love comments on design decisions we've made, etc.

    I'll be out of town on business I fear.
