Attempt to build the same github-scoring app that Tenderlove (and apparently YKatz) created for Peepcode.
So far I am (inadvertently) reproducing much of Aaron's work. (I wish I had seen the project before I saw his solution!!!)
Oh well. It's still a fun activity.
I'll have to force myself to adhere to arbitrary requirements
(e.g. I tried JRuby, but openssl trouble forced me to use Net::HTTP...)
Perhaps I'll extract my github client as a gem …with it's “own” (non-persistent) event & actor classes …see if I can make it function completely independent of the Rails app
