One of our current projects at Highgroove sends a lot of email to its users. It essentially walks them through a process and emails them at each step. All of those messages include URL’s to visit the relevant page in the application for that step. Since we’ve emailed them the URL’s we don’t want them to have to login every time they click one.
As technologists and especially programmers we are always expected to automate as much of any process as we can. In general, this is a good rule of thumb and I’m a big follower of that philosophy.
I’ll be representing Highgroove at the Lone Star Rubyconf this weekend. I’ll give two talks, one for the charity event the night before and another at the main conference.
If you are following the Capistrano preview releases, you may have noticed a new dependency. Capistrano now depends on HighLine, an open source input library by yours truly.
If you are just getting into Rails or still don’t get what all the fuss is about and you happen to be near Oklahoma, you may walk to catch my talk tomorrow night for Refresh OKC. The meeting starts at 6:30 PM in the Oklahoma City Public Library.
I just finshed fixing file uploads in a HighGroove application to work with any size file. I uploaded a 14 byte file to make sure I had things right. This has a few gotchas in Rails, so I thought I would share the recipe for success.
