Re: [PhillyOnRails] Nov/Dec meeting

We have used ActiveResource quite a bit, and we built Jester, the _javascript_ ActiveResource client (  If people are interested, I can arrange for the author of Jester to give a talk on ActiveResource in general and Jester in particular.  It'd have to be after the new year though.

I believe a few months back we watched the RESTful Rails Peepcode... From what your speaking off, it sounds like a good ActiveResource, ingesting RESTful applications, is in order for Rails 2.0. Building standalone services that act on your Rails application's REST APIs would be lovely. Don't know if anyone has messed with ActiveResource yet, maybe in the new year someone will step up for that talk.

It would be great to have a talk on REST -- the difference in the code
for RESTful views and controllers, what you do to routes.rb, the
practical benefits or pitfalls, whether you can actually build a
useful standalone REST client (perhaps in a different language), when
you'd want to go this way (or split your app to be part RESTful and
part old-style), etc.

That could be part of a "Rails 2" discussion, but I think there's
enough there for it to be a full topic on its own.
