Rails Podcast

A while back, Geoffrey Grosenbach interviewed us for a podcast about the nitty-gritty details of building a production web site using Ruby on Rails. Topics include: scaling, when to diverge from Active Record, our approach to software design, SMS integration, the mobile phone user experience, how to receive email, customer support, generating dynamic graphics server-side (the badge) and client-side (the friend-page money graph), and international users. Listen to the podcast (32 minutes) on podcast.rubyonrails.org.

    I listened to the podcast a while back and if I remember correctly you guys were looking for a way to render a web page to an image. Would this work for you:

    There’s an extension based on it:
