comment Can I get jobs in software development with a degree in a major other than Computer Science?
Guys, why is this on hold? I see plenty of similar questions on this very site: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/52370/…, programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/139050/…. If in fact this is off-topic for this site, please suggest to the poster an alternative stackexchange site to use.

comment Is this a secure solution for RESTful authentication?
@Donal That's true...maybe this is overkill. How would you do it? If using SSL, would you keep it simple and 1) send passwords via REST POST in plain text (encrypted via SSL) and 2) just assign a token for each user account and send that in each user's API request?

Yep, it'll be over HTTPS, and I'm using Sinatra for the API.

comment One or many RESTful APIs for large company?
Good point. This is all internal, so luckily there are no liability concerns.

comment One or many RESTful APIs for large company?
Thank you for your feedback. Might this look like using multiple endpoints reverse-proxied or virtually mounted under one domain? Example: api.company.com/api1/resource, api.company.com/api2/resource; api1 and api2 are different endpoints possibly hosted on different machines and different vhosts.

comment Do mixins create coupling with Ruby?
Cool, thanks again for the follow-up of the follow-up. Now, going further, if I use App.keyring to access the keyring instance, aren't any libraries that require a keyring instance coupled to App (and require it to come along for reuse in any other Rails app utilizing keyring)?

comment Do mixins create coupling with Ruby?
By "everyone" I'm mainly referring to bloggers and StackOverflow-ers. So which would you strive for if you were in my shoes, solving this problem: a mixin approach or a DI approach?
