Thanks for the video, I found it very useful. You mentioned at the end that Rails' controllers are limited by database Pool connection size, even when you're not using a database connection in your action. That kind of floored me, I've written tons of controller actions that never talk to ActiveRecord, never realizing that AR could still be a bottleneck.
