Making Data Dance

Abstract :

Rails and the ActiveRecord gem are really handy tools to get work done, and do it quickly. They aren't a silver bullet, though. Sometimes the database is the best place to run a complicated query. Especially when you have big transactional or time-series data. Databases are also incredibly powerful, and can do remarkable things at scale. Why not take advantage of that power?
