I'd like to give a talk on the how-and-why of moving the bulk of your
rails code from the activerecord models (which is often the default
dumping ground) to the underused lib directory. Many devs who learned
ruby *through* rails (I was one) are hesitant to build classes that
weren't cranked out by a rails generator.
We've all heard the mantra "Skinny Controllers, Fat Models". The time
has come for a strategy I like to call "Skinny Models, Fat Librarians"!
If that sounds offensive, I myself have been both fat *and* a librarian
in my lifetime :)
I can cover such issues as:
* What are the benefits? (spoiler alert: speed, and speed)
* What code would I pull out of a model, and why?
* Can I still fully test with RSpec? (yes, I'll show how)
How can I afford to bring you this amazing offer? Because I stumbled
ass-backward into it during a recent project building an API in rails.
Let me know soon if there's interest, so I can comfortably put off
planning the presentation until Monday evening :)
