Today I created the ALPHA stying for CBAC (Context Based Access Control). CBAC is a security gem for Ruby on Rails and adds an extra abstraction layer to the well known RBAC (Role Based Access Control). With CBAC you can add context based security to your Rails app in just a few simple steps. I’m proud to be the first to blog about this new security system for rails!
4 bottles of coke, 3 days and a lot of mashed code. That is how much it took for me to roll out the first prototype of GeoTweets. GeoTweets is an web-based application to show Tweets about a location on a map. Using the Google maps API v3 as a map and gathering the tweets with the Twitter search API allows the application to show tweets on a location about that location.
The concept for this prototype was created for the course Multi-media systems at Leyden University (Netherlands). The initial concept was to show what location on the world most tweets were about. Due to technical limitations this evolved into an application that lets user click to find out what is happening on a location. The locations are saved together with the activity ratio, this is then displayed on the map as active active and recent locations.
