Suggestions for Rails Patterns


Next week I’m going to present Rails Patterns at the Scotland on Rails
conference. The idea is to talk about common pitfalls and problems that
I’ve encountered in many of the Rails projects I’ve been involved with
and describe a solution or best practice.

I’ve already assembled several scenarios like async media processing,
handling massive user data or deployment setups. I’m also curious what
kind of problems you have encountered in your Rails past so that I can
include them.

So if you have any suggestion to a common mistake that you see (like
throwing plugins at random problems just because it seems easier) or a
useful pattern that you use (like following “vendor everything” or how
you handle background jobs), please send them too me. You can post them

as comments in the blog, email me or use twitter ( http://twitter/jweiss
