everything through TDD
1 sheet both sides cheat sheet (typed or handwritten)
there are questions that will build off the homework (up to homework 2)
practice questions are posted
1.5 hour test in 3 hour window
reference docs will be given
regex reference may be useful for the cheat sheet though
Aspect-Oriented Programming
advice: specific piece of code that implements cross-cutting concern
aspect = advice + pointcut
these will help DRY out your code
validation is the advice
models come with “errors” attribute
lifecycle callbacks
allow pre/post operations with predetermined pointcuts
good for operations to standardize data (i.e. cast everything or toUppercase)
control filters
filters declared in controller go to subclass
can alter the flow of execution with “redirect_to” or “render
make sure you alert the user (like “must be logged in to view this page”) or else a
silent failure may confuse them
anything you can code, you can validate
CON: code is harder to debug with all these pointcuts and redirects!
Quiz: Which Ruby features support this DRYness?
A: higher-order functions
B: closures
C: metaprogramming
Answer: All three! (mostly C though)
Single Sign-On and Third Party Authentication
you don’t want to rely on log in info
tamper-evident secure token to keep everything secure
use a string that will be invalid if views
just a “handle”, it doesn’t actually have important information in it
1. Log in with Twitter, 2. Redirect to Twitter, 3. Ok to authorize this app? 4. redirect back
