Did Mojave ruin your Ruby enviornment on Mac?? I updated, and am regretting it.

Always an app idea, never an app? Come to my webinar and find out why

Is it a sign that I'm getting old that I really don't want anything Apple displayed yesterday?

@coloradobum Yeah...thuogh I don't have to drop in to arel if it can be done wihtout...I just couldn't figure it out after the others went fast.....and the documentation wasn't helpful - at least what I could find.

@coloradobum well, i live in rural northern Vermont, so I'd like to work remotely...ideally, I'd like to start with a company that has a strong remote culture and also develops people well....a learning culture.

@coloradobum That's actually a really good question. I serve on two non profit boards - a legacy of my previous career - and I probably should give one of those up. Other things in my life are harder to give up....but I should think hard about what is really adding value to my life.

@coloradobum Well, this is all I have at the moment, and it's not close to working:


It's an example from Flatiron - the idea is that there are captains and there are boats and the boats have multiple classifications (like tags). So I'm trying to return all boats wtih exactlty three classifications....

I appreciate any and all help you can give me. The other methods work and fulfill other requirements.

@betamatt I'll give that a try - thanks. Wish I could just whip this stuff up like that!

@ngw Much thanks. Focus is the biggest challenge - I have a lot of things in life that I enjoy....so blocking things out and focusing is hard...thanks for the reminder!

@betamatt The last one - all posts that have a quantiy of four categories - so I have to count the quanity on the related table....make sense?

Trying to use Arel to query and count. For example, if I have posts in a blog that have categories, related through a post_categories table...how could I get all posts with four categories??

@robotdeathsquad I have an old CompSci degree I earned back in 1993. But after that, I went into a different field and became a hobbyist. I've build a lot of websites and done some Wordpress hacking, but now really want to up my game.

@ahawkins Not a lot of clear documentation on Arel that I can find.

@ahawkins Thanks!! At this very moment I'm trying to wrap my head around Arel and Active Record...chaining these queries across relations, etc.

@alexgc Alex - nice to meet (so to speak)... I am in the NEK - St. Johnsubry - and I'm working throught the Rails section of Flatiron now...would love to buy you coffee (or beer) and pick your brain (so to speak, again).

I am struggling to become a Ruby, JS developer later in life. It's been harder than I thought to rearrange my life to make room for this change. Any one out there have any tips? I'd love to find a solid mentor.

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.

Heading to Quebec City for a little holiday. What's that have to do with Ruby? Nothing I guess.


Learning Ruby (via Flatiron and other resources) and hope to start a new career path as a Ruby dev. Possible? We will see.....

Live in rural Vermont, so also love canoes, mountains, and dogs. Not a hunter, though, ok?

Let's be friends!
