Our group (team of 4) have done a few small-scale Rails applications.
They've been successful enough that we're contemplating a much larger
By scale I don't mean the number of users or hits/second or volumes of
data handled. That really isn't an issue for us, and even if it
happens we're confident we can deal with it.
What we're most concerned about is scaling to a large number of models
and controllers. We estimate about 100+ "entities" that we'll need to
manage, and that doesn't include M:M join tables or general lookup
tables. Also, some of the tables (thankfully only a few) have more
than 40 columns.
Most of the open-source projects we initially looked at for learning
and guidance are quite small (e.g. Insoshi has < 20 models).
Are there any tips for programming in the large?
Any pointers would be appreciated.
