This November, we’ll stay with our cores: Ruby and Rails. We’ll start by talking about ruby-lang and its strange behaviors. Afterward, we’ll see a new feature of Rails 4.
Marc-André Lafortune will present his talk from Confoo 2012: Back Alleys of Ruby. This will be an excursion through dark corners and back alleys of Ruby, a language so dynamic it is difficult to know what its actual specs are. Is it a bug or a feature? This is what we’ll try to figure out.
Martin Provencher will present Strong Parameters, a new feature of Rails 4. The Rails repo on GitHub got hacked because of a mass-assignment bug. whitelist_attributes and attr_accessible was a temporary fix. During this talk, you’ll see the real answer of the rails team to fix that issue. The best part: you can already use this new feature in Rails 3.
I will see you all on Tuesday.
