I gave a talk last night (3/24/2009) at Austin on Rails about building a new (yet-to-be-released) application called TweetReach using tools that are somewhat off the beaten path. These included Sinatra, Tokyo Cabinet and my new Twitter API library: Grackle (which I’ll talk about in more detail in a future blog post).
I referenced some code during the “Building TweetReach” part of the presentation. If you’re interested, you can download it.
By the way, I was the second speaker of the night. Mike Perham spoke before me about caching with Rails. Check his stuff out as well. Thanks to everyone who came out.
Update 4/2/2009: Launched TweetReach! Go check it out.
