What happens when using rake database commands in Rails and when should you use them? Let’s take a look at how we can use these commands while developing an application.
The emphasis is, make sure any user input is html escaped or sanitized before sending it to a browser.

I am going on a making diet. I started using twitter and blogs heavily about three years ago. In that time, I have learned an incredible amount by watching, listening, and reading. I have benefited greatly from all of the people I have met and the materials people have created. However, I find myself with too little time to get things done and still spending a lot of time looking through my Twitter feed, reading news letters, browsing through interesting ads delivered to my inbox, and etc. I really want to be making things! I want to be writing code, becoming a better writer, teaching others how to learn Ruby, writing Rails applications, writing node.js applications, and etc. I am consuming more than I am making. Because of my behavior, I am afraid I am at risk for joining the waiting crowd from Dr. Suess’s “Oh, the places You’ll Go!”. Terrifying.
