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…

LFPUG v0.1

Well done to Tink for organising the first ever ‘London Flash Platform User Group’ (or just lfpug if yer l33t), which went off with a bang last night in the Play bar on Old st.

I counted around 30 people there, not bad for a first event, and everyone seemed to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Was nice to have a beer while watching the presentations!

I’ve got some photos and video that we’ll put up on the site at some point soon, but for now, here’s a PUG cos, well, he’s cool, init :)
