Today I’m giving some recognition to Kir Shatrov, number 87 on the top 100 Rails contributors.

Kir, based in London, has 89 commits and racked them up from 2011 to 2018. They include a fix to make BigDecimal’s precision consistent across platforms, and ActiveRelation changes which support SQL’s INSERT command. Kir also fixed a memoization bug in ActionDispatch testing, set up ActiveRecord to serialize its schema cache with YAML, and made a bunch of edits to the Rails Guide on testing. The theme in his work seems to be that he’s made Rails testing better many times. He’s also made a bunch of code quality improvements.

Big ups to Kir for keeping the Rails code base in great shape!
