Rails 3.1 HackFest Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Rails 3.1 HackFest! I hope you enjoyed sharing your love of Rails, plus a few beers, as much as we did. It was great getting to know some of our neighbors.

In addition to upgrading a few Rails apps to the latest 3.1 release candidate, we also submitted a few RailsGuides patches, found a bug and submitted a failing test. We didn't even have a chance to fix it before grzuy picked it up and submitted the patch.

We ran into a few bumps moving to the 3.1 asset pipeline, but overall the upgrade from Rails 3.0 to 3.1 has been smooth. As for the 2.3 to 3.0 upgrade, Rails provides deprecation warnings in the previous point release, 3.0.9 as I write this, so the upgrade goes a little something like this:

  1. Upgrade to Rails 3.0.9
  2. Upgrade other gems as necessary (e.g., haml 3.0 to haml 3.1 + sass 3.1)
  3. Run tests, fix tests, rinse and repeat
  4. Walk through the application and fix any deprecation warnings that crop up in the rails log
  5. Upgrade to Rails 3.1

And now...your moment of zen.

Relevance Open-door Bug Mash Friday May 14

This Friday, May 14, Relevance Inc. is hosting a local bug mash in preparation for the Rails 3 BugMash May 15 & 16 organized by RailsBridge. We tip our hats to this worthy cause and hope to set a modest bar for the participants over the weekend.

Dan Pickett, who is coordinating the Rails 3 BugMash, recently challenged users to give back to the platform that has provided so much win for so many. At Relevance we certainly hear that message. Rails supports a significant portion of our work. It has been and continues to be one of the most progressive and dynamic platforms for programmers today. On top of that, it is fundamentally open source and thrives in a community of mutual collaboration.

In this spirit, we at Relevance pledge to donate our entire Friday to kick-starting the mashing festivities. Those bugs we target will be crushed not for prizes or glory, but out of gratitude to the platform and community. We are eager to see the magic that Rails 3 will produce and we hope to do our part to make that release the best it can be. If you will be in the area this Friday please feel free to stop by our office where there will be food, fun, and lots and lots of coffee.

You can find us at:
200 North Mangum St., Suite 204
Durham, NC, 27701

For more information, please contact us via email at info@thinkrelevance.com or by phone at 919-442-3030.
