Hybrid Invitations Powered By Rails 3.2 and Ruby 1.9.3

ruby 1.9.3Since the push to Rails 3.1.3 I’ve actually upgraded mightyvites.com to use Rails 3.2.3 and Ruby 1.9.3. This was an easy move forward with little to write home about. The upgrade was significant, however, because Ruby 1.9.3 is noticeably faster than 1.9.2 and Rails 3.2.3 has a much better development environment. It only reloads classes that have changed plus it has query explains. Check out the release notes to read about all the goodness. I certainly thought this upgrade was worth it.

Upgrade To Rails 3.0.10 And Ruby 1.9.2 Reviewed

ruby on rails 3 upgradeOver a year ago (!) I announced my intention to upgrade mightyvites.com from Ruby 1.8.7 and Rails 2.2.2 to Ruby 1.9.2 and Rails 3. Took me long enough but I’m now finally following up on the issue.

No, it didn’t take me a year to do the upgrade. Shortly after I wrote that post I took a full time Rails job. Then my business got busy with paying customers. Then I got engaged and a few months later married. There were a lot of distractions which kept throwing me off my Ruby On Rails upgrade plans. I did do it though. In fact I completed two Rails upgrades this summer. One for mightyvites.com and one for my employer. In both cases I transitioned webapps from Rails 2.x to Rails 3.0.10 and introduced Ruby 1.9.2. Doing so was definitely worth it. Rails 3 feels so much more mature than previous releases. The upgrade, however, was not easy. Below are the issues I had to deal with to make it happen.

The Mighty Nice March To Ruby On Rails 3 And Ruby 1.9.2

Ruby On Rails 3

I’ve been working with Ruby On Rails 2.2.2 and Ruby 1.8.7 for a little over a year now. The Mightyvites site is built on that foundation, as is the Mighty Nice site, and a few of our client sites. However, with the release of Rails 3, and it’s compatibility with Ruby 1.9.2, I’m itching to upgrade both. There are a few reasons why I want to upgrade the cores of our RoR sites: Read the rest of this entry »

Mighty Nice Lessons From ChicagoRuby Hack Night

Ruby 1.9Last night I attended a ChicagoRuby Hack Night. It was my first one, and well worth going to. The topic was Ruby 1.9 and how it differs from 1.8. The format was very casual. There was a written introduction to 1.9, and attendees randomly paired up to explore the intro on their laptop’s irb command line. It was a good opportunity to meet like-minded people and geek out on some cool new language features. Here’s what I learned about Ruby 1.9 at the ChicagoRuby Hack Night:
