[20:11:21] gsd: would having a table named "Format" for a child relationship cause any issues / conflicts in AR?
[20:12:39] gsd: bricker: there does seem to be a .filter method on AR objects though
[20:13:18] gsd: so that's a conflict?
[20:14:29] gsd: gsd: whoopsy. yes format is what i meant to say
[20:14:36] gsd: brain fart
[20:17:31] gsd: bricker: thanks

[20:41:49] gsd: can i have a table called "transactions"?
[20:42:04] gsd: it seems rails has transactions built into activerecord and it is causing a conflict
[20:46:33] gsd: that's what i want
[20:46:38] gsd: a model called Transaction
[20:47:33] gsd: can i not do this?
[20:48:28] gsd: well, activerecord already ads a .transactions method to models
[20:48:48] gsd: so what happens when i also add a model called "Transaction" which is modeling the transactions table

[18:38:00] gsd: any los angeles folk here looking for a sr. engineering gig? https://www.assetavenue.com/careers

[06:30:08] gsd: is it a good idea to initialize an api client on startup such that it can be reused throughout the app without having to reup the client?

[20:50:12] gsd: i'm hiring rails devs in los angeles - would it be ok if share a link to our careers page?
[20:51:01] gsd: well, i should say i'm hiring sr. software engineers - rails is a nice to have
[20:51:05] gsd: but ruby is a must
[20:51:20] gsd: i also welcome feedback on the job postings that i wrote too
[20:51:49] gsd: https://www.assetavenue.com/careers
[20:52:02] gsd: of course
[20:52:20] gsd: it's on github and stackoverflow too - though, surprisingly, not many are biting
[20:52:38] gsd: i'd have expected more from stackoverflow
[20:53:21] gsd: i've got several rails dev positions in the los angeles area if you know anyone looking: https://www.assetavenue.com/careers
[21:08:33] gsd: just curious
[21:10:38] gsd: josephndenton: yup - still recruiting. takes time to find folks. there's more demand than supply.
[21:13:36] gsd: Cat_1: honestly, we're just looking for culture fit first and then all-around good engineers.
[21:16:04] gsd: Cat_1: if you're in the los angeles area, i'd be happy to give you a ring today. shoot me over your resume: joshua@assetavenue.com
[21:16:39] gsd: we would prefer a degree - but i also don't want to rule out someone who doesn't have a degree - many great engineers just don't have them
[21:17:29] gsd: one of my best engineers has a law degree!
[21:18:54] gsd: Cat_1: why don't you move to los angeles? :p
[21:19:25] gsd: way to really sell it

2014-11-05

[17:27:05] gsd: are there any tools / services that will automatically email me when either ruby or one of my gems has an updated version
[17:28:13] gsd: this looks great
[17:31:02] gsd: do you even lift bro?
[17:31:39] gsd: or wings as i like to call them

2014-11-03

[21:34:15] gsd: hello. i'm a hiring manager - just wondering if anyone has tips / suggestions for where to find and recruit great engineers.
[21:35:14] gsd: we're on both of these - just not getting many great submissions.
[21:35:20] gsd: assetavenue.com is our site
[21:36:06] gsd: jenrzzz: that's a new one - i'll give it a go
[21:37:52] gsd: jenrzzz: usually, they hate when people go there to try and recruit
[21:37:59] gsd: why don't you apply?
[21:38:38] gsd: interesting - so you think devs go specifically for the purpose of being recruited
[21:39:05] gsd: well, thankfully i'm an engineer myself and not a recruiter
[21:39:15] gsd: but i know from my own experience how annoying actual recruiters can be
[21:40:12] gsd: we're about to close a $20M Series A and need engineers to help build out our real estate lending platform
[21:40:27] gsd: pipework: that's good feedback
[21:41:16] gsd: there's a lot of opportunity here for the right engineer - we're basically going to be ramping up from a handful of engineers to dozens more in the next year
[21:42:46] gsd: i suppose the other question i have is: what excites you guys the most about a new job opportunity? this will help me set us up to attract top engineers as well as keep them (culture is at the top of my personal list)
[21:43:51] gsd: toretore: tell me more
[21:44:22] gsd: if i told you that you'd be working on building a billion dollar crowdfunded lending platform - is that exciting
[21:44:44] gsd: in a startup, it can be difficult to pitch what you'll be doing technically 6 months or a year from now
[21:45:04] gsd: fuck yea
[21:45:24] gsd: i mean, i left a really great gig to join this company. we have adam chapnick, cofounder indiegogo
[21:45:39] gsd: we have so many great startup stars here - it helps that i also love real estate
[21:46:11] gsd: toretore: tell me more about trust - what do you mean?
[21:46:52] gsd: interesting
[21:47:17] gsd: i'm not sure i agree with just hiring engineers and letting them do whatever they want (if that's what you're saying)
[21:48:08] gsd: you mean you want more input into product decisions or technical decisions or both
[21:48:25] gsd: because that's not really trust
[21:48:30] gsd: that's something different
[21:49:27] gsd: being an engineer myself, i can recognize (or i'd like to think I can) great talent when it happens. in those cases, i ALWAYS try to find ways to give that person more and more responsiblity
[21:49:32] gsd: smart people get bored quickly
[21:56:31] gsd: i am offering a $500 referral fee if someone refers me a great dev
[22:06:21] gsd: pipework: i personally haven't seen many companies offering a public referral fee like we are
[22:06:30] gsd: most work through recruiters (which we are also doing)
[22:06:55] gsd: or have internal referral programs that offer more, which we also do

[23:26:58] gsd: anyone here use heroku
[23:27:19] gsd: looking for a recommendation on running a cron
[23:32:41] gsd: i'd like to write a cron in ruby
[23:32:56] gsd: should i just spin up a rails project and write a rake task and use the heroku schedule add-on
[23:33:02] gsd: or is there a simpler way to do it
[23:34:56] gsd: does whenever just run when the app is loaded
[23:35:36] gsd: basically, i have a single ruby file with some code that i'd like to run at midnight
[23:35:49] gsd: but i'm unsure of how to setup the cron in heroku
[23:36:07] gsd: ah, see i don't think heroku will let you actually use crontab
