RubyConf*MI 2006 Is Over, Moving Forward 27 Aug 2006
RubyConf*MI 2006 Is Over!

RubyConf*MI 2006 is over! It was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who attended and who spoke. I met alot of great people from the region (Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois). The conference went from 9am to 6:30pm, and then afterwards a bunch of the people who stuck around went to the Grand Rapids Brewing Co. for food and drinks. I had an awesome time and I can’t wait until next year!

ActiveRecord Extensions

I gave a presentation at RubyConf-MI I that focused on ActiveRecord. The second half of this presentation focused on some extended functionality that I am working on to have richer searching support and better support for working with large sets of data. Currently version 0.0.3 of this is released. I have updates which include the richer searching support for Regexps, Ranges and Arrays via passing the ActiveRecord::Base.find method a Hash, but it isn’t released yet. I submitted a request to open a RubyForge project for this, and pending it’s approval I am going to move my current SVN repos to RubyForge. That should happen in the next 1 to 3 days. I will then release 0.0.4 which includes this better searching support. If you were at RubyConf-MI]1 then you know what functionality I’m talking about, otherwise you’ll have to wait until it’s released. But it is really great additions to ActiveRecord!
