Random techie babbling...

Thanks for the dead tree!

(Update: it was of course Stuart Eccles not Stefan Richter who did the Rails talk, my bad!)

Wanted to say thanks to Stuart Eccles and O’Reilly for the copy of Agile Web Development With Rails I won at the LFPUG the other night.

I already owned the PDF version and it’s always nice to have a the ‘real’ version to flick through. It goes without saying that this is the book to get when you want to get started with Rails, and will remain a handy reference long after you’ve finished reading it. The second version is available now as a constantly evolving ‘beta’ PDF. Kinda like ‘Agile Authoring’ :)

There seemed to be a lot of interest in Rails at LFPUG, I’ll try to get proper posts up on some things Stefan didn’t have time to mention, for instance I use RadRails which is an extremely cool Eclipse plugin, and there’s a new Live CD that may be worth a play with.

Stay tuned…

  1. I’ll swop my presentation with Stefan’s if you want but I don’t know much about Flash Media Server ;-)

    There were hundreds of other things to mention but only so many hours in a night and pints in the bar.

    maybe its time for a London Ruby On Rails User Group ;-)
