What makes Ruby Roll?
Host: Obie Fernandez
Ruby is taking the world by storm. Ruby has actually been around for a while, but now suddenly things are starting to happen.
Ruby on Rails is the driver, but what are the fundamental ideas that make Ruby roll? Why are developers moving to the Ruby Platform? Interestingly enough it is primarily Java developers that are moving to Ruby. One reason - at least - is the combination of meta programming features and a the flexible syntax of the Ruby language, making it easy to create easy-to-use frameworks based on internal DSLs.
This track provides in-depth on the Ruby language, frameworks, and best practices for programming Ruby.
