    MongoDB Evangelism: bson query, if you want to get the data by attribute
    used

    Tagged object vs a schema object

    Have the object, you add tags to them

    No Migration

    Mongoid ORM

    Cassandra (lots to configuration)

    Postgres of noSQL

    Last night's meetup was fun. Here's the summary: we decided to try to use MongoDB for storing the results of Edmunds API calls so that we don't have to keep asking the same questions over and over again if people want to compare the same cars. Mongo was suggested by Peter Bloom, seems to have some good experience with MongoDB so probably a good person to ask if you want to know more. Chester got Mongo up and running with Rails with Peter's help. Mabel's company uses Her for an ActiveResource API so we looked into that a bit and she's looking into it more. Didn't get very far in the Ember, Dart looked pretty cool. Congrats to Yao on the new job!
    Another cool git tool is tig: https://github.com/jonas/tig (brew install tig) gives you a text based git history

    Also, http://gitx.frim.nl/ a graphical one. You can use it to commit (I just don't trust those UIs to commit my code still)

    I see a few newcomers, if anyone is interested in contributing I can add you to the project. Anyone hear of another hack night in Mountain View/Palo Alto area?

    Mabel, I started to look at her-rb and I'm having an issue. I created a scope to handle the api token and format json required by the api, but it doesn't seem to returning the data or making the request.
    Makes.Pickmyride.find('Acura_MDX')
    2.1.1 :020 > Makes.Pickmyride
    => #<Her::Model::Relation:0x000001015b6d80 @parent=Makes, @params={:api_key=>"paqqtuhsazun2gm32mg976tr", :fmt=>"json"}, @_fetch=nil>
    Instead I get an Her::Model::Relation, I'm not finding much help on Google either. The features of her seem better than ActiveResource though... I am wondering if using a different adapter would help. Maybe you can take a look and see what I'm doing wrong? I committed the change to develop. Thanks!!

    Laura, I need to get some homework done this weekend but I will be sure to take a look. In the meantime, you can see if you can just use ActiveResource directly without using the Her gem. Just to get something going for yourself.

    Sounds good. Thanks

    hey all, I made some progress with the Edmunds API and Mongodb. Check it out if you pull the latest from develop or master, goto http://localhost:3000/sync, then it will pull the data from edmunds and after that you can use rails roiutes to look up makes and models like http://localhost:3000/makes --> all the makes http://localhost:3000/makes/200347864/models.json

    do we have to use bootstrap and erb?
    Laura J. Unterguggenberger
    @lauraeci
    Nope, we don't have to use either, I'm not a fan of bootstrap but then I was reading about using it for responsive layout so I added it. Ember uses handlebars so I think we should use that. But no objections to using something else for Responsive

    New in Rails 4.1 Action Pack Variants
    We often want to render different HTML/JSON/XML templates for phones, tablets, and desktop browsers. Variants make it easy.

    does responsive design not solve the need for different html templates for different devices? only json should be needed as extra, if building a native mobile app, no?
    Laura J. Unterguggenberger
    @lauraeci
    Right, json is the only thing needed for the mobile app, but I wanted to build a web app also.
    responsive design changes the layout depending on the screen size width and height with varying degrees of success depending on the device. Android for example doesn't respond to orientation media queries so the Action Pack Variants might solve that problem. I know how to make native iOS apps with RubyMotion, but not so sure about Android, want to look into http://ruboto.org/
