What brought you to Rails Forum? Was looking for help for general information about AR (has_many :through over has_many :through) and plugins to create my own forum engine in rails without rewriting wheel over again, found a topic about AR issue on this forum, feel obliged to answer, and didn't find answer of my question about has_many
How do you use Ruby/Ruby on Rails? For the moment, only for personal projects. Used to work 3 years with RoR in Paris, but moved in Lyon and there's no RoR company in France elsewhere than in Paris. So actually, working in Java during day, and working on a RoR forum engine the night ^^.
During my 3 years experience, I was working essentially on one big application to manage ski shop's stocks from sale / rent to stock management and accountancy. Application was originaly written in rails 1.2.3, without any unit testing, all code in controller, poor database schema. I rewrote it from scratch in rails 2.3. Had to deal with many scalability issues (complex database associations with lot of STI, very hard to eager load etc...) so, i've been thinking my experience could interest some people there.
Hope I will be helpfull, and hope I will learn some tricks from rails 3.0 here.
Excuse my poor english, i'm french after all ^^.
