Stimulus Reflex BlackJack, Leaving ActionText, and Calendar Gems

Welcome to Remote Ruby! Jason is Back and he has a lot to share! The guys all catch up and start out talking about fun video games and gaming devices that they’ve been using to have a little fun in their life aside from working. They get down to business eventually and talk about what’s new in the Ruby World. Jason lets us in on a new Ruby Gem he’s released and a new game he’s been working on using Stimulus Reflex. Chris did a major update in Rails. Andrew’s been working on a lot of components and using parts of Chris’s calendar gem at CodeFund. You need to download this episode now to find out why Andrew is now Team ERB and has disavowed HAML ☺! WHAT???!!!!!

[00:29:02] Back to Jason’s blackjack game, he talks about another cool thing he did with it using active-record import for importing new records and he explains what he did. Let’s say it’s been mentally stimulating and exciting for Jason working on this project.
