Chris announces that GoRails is getting a BIG update this coming year and we’ll hear what’s going on, they discuss sales tax stuff being a pain and using metered billing in Stripe on the new Hatchbox.  Jason’s wearing his Christmas pajamas, so you know what that means… Ruby 3.2.0 is coming out soon, and we’ll find out some of the new features. And if you’ve been wondering when we’re going to get a Docker file for Rails, well now there are two, and Chris tells us about them.
