A slow news week thanks to the distractions of rubyconf, but we have a full featured podcast for you - Formstastic 2.0 has been released, we have a good article about DCI, which is causing a bunch of conversation lately, koans for learning Coffeescript, gemstats, using LESS in the asset pipeline, and instructions for serving your piped assets over Amazon's Cloudfront CDN are all featured in this CodeSherpa-led Ruby5 expedition.
