Pair Programming on Rails Scopes Discussion

General • Asked by Chris Oliver

For your business days scope, could you not use Time.now.wday to keep it all ruby and DB agnostic, rather than using EXTRACT? (http://ruby-doc.org/core-2....

The EXTRACT is required because you need something to pull out the week day inside the database so you can make the comparison. The Ruby method unfortunately can't help you here because this is running a query inside the database.


Are you going to do more pair programming videos in the future? This and the one where you're fixing a bug in Devise are my favourites.

Definitely planning to! I think it helps explain things a lot better with the discussion.


This sort of tutorial is really so helpful. It would have been more nice if we could watch how to change default week days and starting week day in rails.
