Good morning all,
I am wondering if there is any ongoing work to speed up ActiveRecord object instantiation from the database? I am working on a project where we have determined that loading AR records from the database has become a bottleneck in a coupe of spots. To alleviate this we have resorted to raw SQL and hashes.
After reading this article (http://merbist.com/2012/02/23/quick-dive-into-ruby-orm-object-initialization/), it seems to me that if we made the lifecycle hooks optional we could get a little speed bump. They would be on by default but I could turn them off when I declared my AR derived class.
Any other places that I can help out to make this happen?
