View Fast user switching with Devise
Ever wondered how to login as another user within Devise?
Recently we had a feature request that would provide Admins with the ability
to sign is as another user. You could imagine live demonstrations or even production
support calls where you would like to be signed in as another user, yet not
have to ask for or decrypt their current password. After stewing for a bit, we found a
pretty nice solution with Devise.
Here's the Cucumber feature...

Working around Haskell's namespace problem for records

The Problem

Defining records in Haskell causes accessor functions for the record's fields to be defined. There is no seperate namespace for these accessor functions.

The Goal

Be able to

Modern applications

Most JavaScript developers love making modern applications, with our new language features and latest libraries making our life easier, but has any one ever actually wondered if this ever impacts our users.

We are dealing with abstractions, abstractions are trying to cover a general use case which could not be conforming to yours. Some are over-engineered in ways one can't possibly comprehend, use cases that will never be reached by middle sized applications. Some of these over
