So our intern Ricky is headed off to Korea for a bit and we will miss him. The project that he was working of for Rebel Outpost has been quite a monster legacy Rails project. Ricky was really amazing in that he never gave in without a fight.
The project required an activity stream and off to Google, Ricky went. His approach was not only a huge success but something that none of us have ever used before; Mongoid Observers.
He even wrote a short tutorial for it at So you want to make an observer in Mongoid…
Thanks again Rick and hurry back!
