The reality is, this is just the tip of the iceberg. This is a chance to see what Ruby without Rails can let you do. For this evening we have two short talks that cover different approaches in using Ruby to develop web applications.
An introduction to Sinatra
Minimalist Rails and Rack
We're going to look at what is possible when you take the Rails stack to the bare minimum. We'll also take a detour to Rack, the modular web server interface Rails now supports and the flexibility and power that provides. By David Rice of Rumble Labs.
After the talks, it will be time to get hacking. Pick a project. Anything you like! There will be experienced Rubyists on hand to help out and answer questions.
So come along, sit down with a beer and get coding.
We're looking for sponsors for the bar and maybe some food. So if you're keen to help out, please leave a commment or get in touch.
