Could someone consider doing a beginning talk on logging in Rails?
All I know is puts, though I know there is some fancier logging
framework out there.  If you give this talk, you'll be safe in the
knowledge that you're sparing me various commentary like "what the
hell, another puts?!?" when certain other people read my code.  :)

Rails uses log4r, which is in the ruby standard library now. In each controller and model there is a logger defined for you which is configured in environment.rb and the environment specifiers (if you wan tto use syslog in production for example). "this is an info level log statement, woot!"

will work in pretty much any controller or model =)
