Handling deletes with Null Object Pattern in Ruby

By Raluca Pintilii,

2019 development rails

I recently worked on a project for an Australian company who wanted to ensure they were GDPR compliant in how they handled personal data through their website and requests to delete user accounts.

If we want the user and all the associated data (blog posts, comments, etc) deleted, it is easy, we just need to add dependent: :destroy to the relations and Rails takes care of that for us.

Working on inherited code bases

2019 development rails

If you are a freelance developer or working for a project / consultancy company like us here at reinteractive, there is a good chance you'll be working on inherited codebases that were created by other developers/agencies. Unlike greenfield projects, existing codebases come with uncertainty and a lack of background knowledge that you normally get from a project created by you or your own company.

To make this situation even more challenging, these projects usually come with tight deadlines so there is limited time for you to fully understand the codebase.

Have you serviced your Ruby on Rails Application?

2019 rails

To many of us, our cars, motorcycles and push bikes are critical to our day-to-day operation. Even if we don't use a car regularly, the taxi, bus, train or ferry network we use to commute is critical to our day to day living.

What would you think if you found out the car you were driving has not had a checkup, or at least an oil change in the last couple of years? Would you ignore your mechanic, or would you take your car in, for at least a rudimentary checkup when needed?

By Victor Hazbun,

2019 development learning rails

Whether you are a veteran Ruby on Rails developer or relatively new, the rapid application development framework that is Rails focuses on quickly getting things up and running. Sooner or later it's likely that your speed of development has made a great product, but the speed leaves a bit to be desired - and your code needs optimisation.

But now you need to know what to optimise.
