It’s been a while I have posted anything. I have been extremly busy and have been working on an extremely critical project where we were asked to become PCI 2.0 compliant. I worked on some interesting problems however today I will be discussing on something trivial and discuss my frustration about Rails. I have to admit that a number of times I thought I should just give up and start learning Python or stick to my forte i.
I am working a new project and I recently ran into an interesting problem. One of the web site that I keep up at work was supposed to take the user to another website which required me to add post parameters. EX - www.mywebsite.makeapayment.com ==> Collects Billing information ex - name, amount, address etc.==> Post this information to www.vendor-website.com. I did not realize the problem until I started coding and my colleague pointed out that as soon as www.
It’s possible that many of you already knew this but if not then here’ some basic info on Maven profiles. I have been using maven for over 2 and half years now, and have been copy pasting assembly and install files.

For the last one month, I have been working on an android app for a grocery store. I have been using PhoneGap to develop the solution as the client wanted both Android and Iphone version. I have tried building the app in native Android but going through the hassle of designing css was just too much for me and plus I did not had time to learn Iphone development. There was a short learning phase for PhoneGap and the results were awesome.
So what’s new here? Well I was playing around with Phonegap to build a small android and ios app. I was able to build a small weather app using Yahoo weather api but then I came across Sencha Touch 2. I wanted to build the same app in Sencha Touch and compare the two platforms for developing mobile apps and as ap part of its get started tutorial I had to drop the Sencha Touch in a web server.
Long long time ago in a far far away land….. I am just kidding. So I needed a gem to do file uploads(in my case images but you can upload anything) and I was looking at various options. Paperclip is a popular option but there is a new kid on the block (so i read in various forums)… Carrierwave. Now I have not used Paperclip but what I read was that Carrierwave is more flexible and powerful than Paperclip so if are interested then keep reading.

CAUTION: Please excuse the diction/grammar/spelling. It’s 3 AM and I am in a hurry to sleep as I need to drop my friends to airport in exactly 4 hrs. So I was trying to set up this new application for my wife. I was using galleria plugin to show a slide like image. Everything was working fine in development so I decided to see how it would look like in production environment if it was deployed in a cloud or virtual server.
