Fantastic episode, has helped me a lot. Can I suggest a tweak to the remove_fields coffee script :

$(document).on 'click', 'form .remove_fields', (event) ->
$('input[name$="[_destroy]"]', $(this).siblings()).val('1')
$(this).closest('fieldset').hide()
event.preventDefault()

This makes it less dependent on the position of the hidden destroy field.

Postgres isn't the only database that provides Schemas. You can achieve the same thing in Oracle with Schemas and Public Synonyms.

Great episode. Can you explain what motivated you to build the final example without fog or carrierwave?

I'm keen to understad which of these rich application frameworks would be best suited for developing HTML5 mobile apps. How well do they work with offline storage and automatic synchronisation?

Very interesting idea. I can see this being useful on user models with an email address or user name. Does friendly_id assume the name column is unique?

ActiveAdmin is great when you need a set of screens to let you manage your data directly. It saves having to build and test extra screens that you never plan to roll out to general users. If you spend too much time customising ActiveAdmin then perhaps you should be building a custom screen for that function.

What's the difference between Geocoder and GeoKit? I've used GeoKit before and found it very good.

Great job, Ryan. The best just got even better.
