Multitenancy with Rails 3
About the Book
This book will teach you how to build a multi-tenanted Ruby on Rails application and how to build subscriptions into that app.
What's a multi-tenanted application? Think of applications like GitHub, where each user or organisation can have their own separate area within the application. Or how about Heroku where each user has their own separate app group. Those are multi-tenanted applications.
In this book we'll be building a multi-tenanted forum application using some seriously good best practices, working with tools and processes like Behaviour-Driven Development, and PostgreSQL schemas. That's just the first four chapters.
In the 5th chapter, the book covers adding subscriptions to an application using the Braintree gateway.
