Rails_ A Year of Innovation Presentation 1 [PDF]
When you’re working in an open language, using open frameworks, the amount of innovation from the community can be staggering. A single developer working on a hobby website can release a snippet of code, and a week later 100 companies could be using that gem or plugin to improve their existing website, impacting hundreds of thousands of users.
For the past year Gregg Pollack and Jason Seifer have been producing the Rails Envy Podcast, covering the latest advancements and developments in the Ruby language and the Rails Framework. In this talk they will discuss the most innovative developments they’ve come across in the past year.
Any Rails developer is bound to pickup at least 5 new tools for their tool-belt.
