Podcast on Agile/Lean Methodologies

Here at Integrum, we record a weekly podcast called the "ScrumCast".
The ScrumCast is where we discuss a variety of topics related to Agile
adoption, Scrum, teams, technical practices and community. Influential
members of the Agile community frequently join our discussions to
share their opinions and experiences.

For tips on how to empower your team and transform your business,
check us out at http://integrumtech.com/category/scrumpodcast/

Using Agile/Lean in your Ruby work we would love to have you on a
episode to talk about what is and isn't working for you.

MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT: Tuesday, April 10th <at> 6:30pm - Sam Rawlings on Testing Cucumber/Selenium 2 with RSpec

Sam will create a Cucumber/Selenium2/RSpec test suite against an existing, source-unavailable/ambiguous/agnostic web app. Cover the Cucumber Scenario (Gherkin) syntax and basic Selenium2 methods. Then, with the foundations laid, he will explore how to use "Background," data tables, write stakeholder-friendly scenarios, be unambiguous about step names, use Cucumber tags, handle ambiguously-located DOM elements, highlight elements before interacting with them, and take screenshots.

Re: MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT: Tuesday, April 10th <at> 6:30pm - Sam Rawlings on Testing Cucumber/Selenium 2 with RSpec

And, lo and behold, our contract jobs finally made it to Ruby::AZ!
 
Hope to join in tonight if I'm not trashed by the marathon volunteering. I need to learn more about DFT and TDD. :D

Re: Re: Ruby / Rails 101 Class / Workshops

I missed the RubyAZ meeting, was there any further development regarding the 101 workshop?

If all works well, we can consider doing a 102 course as well.

rails, localhost, resque, & workers

Hi,


  I have a rails 3 app that we host on heroku. We're using resque to schedule emails which are sent with SendGrid. Last month or so ago I had to change the code to deliver individual emails because only the first person on the recipients was getting it. This month we've realize we are going way over on our sendgrid plan. So I figured I should really fix the recipient problem. I'm working my way through this one, but testing it is becoming a problem. I can make the call but apparently I need a worker thread running to handle the resque job or someting?

  I can see the resque job queue up, but the mailer method never gets call locally. I'm guessing that's because there's no worker thread running for resque to use. How can I start a worker for this?

Thanks,
Josh

Re: rails, localhost, resque, & workers

I run an app that uses rescue.

I have a resque.rake in my lib/tasks directory:
require 'resque/tasks'

task "resque:setup" => :environment do
  ENV['QUEUE'] = '*'
end

desc "Alias for resque:work (To run workers on Heroku)"
task "jobs:work" => "resque:work"

And then I use heroku scale to start a worker:
(cedar:)
$ heroku ps:scale workers=1
(or bambo:)
$ heroku workers 1

Hi,

  I have a rails 3 app that we host on heroku. We're using resque to schedule emails which are sent with SendGrid. Last month or so ago I had to change the code to deliver individual emails because only the first person on the recipients was getting it. This month we've realize we are going way over on our sendgrid plan. So I figured I should really fix the recipient problem. I'm working my way through this one, but testing it is becoming a problem. I can make the call but apparently I need a worker thread running to handle the resque job or someting?

  I can see the resque job queue up, but the mailer method never gets call locally. I'm guessing that's because there's no worker thread running for resque to use. How can I start a worker for this?

Thanks,
Josh

Hey everybody,
If you have anything good to share about Ruby and would like that on
the Ruby AZ website, please let me know.

Also, thinking of doing a weekly interview with a local Rubyist to put
on the site.

Hit me up with any ideas.

BR

Can someone lend a hand with JSON and Rails 3.2?

I'm just getting started with JSON and am running into a roadblock.  I've posted the issue on stack overflow:


If one of you could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Nathan
