Over the last few days I've been working on a new micro-framework called Newman which can be used to simplify the task of building email based applications. This is based on the integration exercise from our January 2012 core skills session, and wouldn't be possible without help from several of the students from our alumni network. I'd particularly like to thank Brent, Sherin, Brian, and Eric for their help with testing and ideas as I worked towards a first release.
Please check out the project, and consider participating in this Practicing Ruby exercise related to it, even if you're not a subscriber.
PS: We're going to try to integrate Newman with the community app to give us ad-hoc mailing list for organizing our activities... more on that soon
