As some of you noticed, I was absence for with my blogs for two years. There was different reasons for it, but the main one was the workload as freelancing developer. In this time I couldn’t care about the tutorials and anticipate the changes in the software environment.
In the last two years there was a lot of changes. The Ruby on Rails Framework evolved to version 3 with a lot of architecture changes and the beta version of Rails 4 was released last weeks. The Google Maps API raised to Version 3, too. Again with a lot of architecture changes. There was a lot of work to upgrade my customers applications. Besides the freelance work I have had a lot of work with our new house,too.
As I started this tutorials blog I wanted to create advanced rails tutorials providing a solution for a certain problem. But in my opinion these tutorials are only useful if they are working with the current version numbers of the software. With the workload of the last years I couldn’t update them properly and so I decided to shut down the blog temporary.
Now I will start again. I’m going to rewrite the tutorials matching the current version of Ruby on Rails and the Google API’s. If someone likes the legacy code from the old tutorials I will add them. But the code examples won’t be as useful as two years ago.
