Suggest a Topic Today

I get inspiration for topics on my own, but I thought I would also open it up to the populace. If you have a topic you’d like me to write about here, let me know. I’ve setup a topic forum on uservoice. I also put a link in the header of this site that links to the uservoice forum.

I’ve seen several applications try this out and I’m curious to see if it works for blogs. If I don’t get anything over the next while I’ll take it down, but who knows, maybe you all have some good ideas. If there is anything you don’t know how to do or would like to learn more about in ruby or rails, suggest a topic today.

Update (Oct 15): Wow. Already 10 topics suggested. All of them seem worthy of a post too. Fun thing is I’ll have to do some research for a couple of them as I’m not even up on the topic.

    HTTParty is simply fantastic. More examples, please. Esp., how to parse & use the responses with ActiveRecord.

  2. @Kevin – I can definitely show a few more HTTParty examples. I’ll add that to the topic suggestions. Thanks for the input.

  3. I thinks that topic “RESTfull for dummies” will be usefull. Full description about Restfull philosophy.

Sorry, comments are closed for this article to ease the burden of pruning spam.
