Many of us are excited about Ruby on Rails but there are still plenty
of questions about performance, scalability and internationalization.
Some companies have already decided to use RoR, and others are
Is Ruby on Rails Ready for Business ?
The Ruby on Rails Camp on November 9th in San Jose is an opportunity to
exchange questions and opportunities on the topic of RoR's suitability
for real-world, real-business applications. Will it scale? Will I be
able to hire developers? Will it persist? Will there be support? Will
it be compatible with /*/? Will there be enough third-party components?
... are all items one has to consider.
The RoR camp will be held at IBM's Almaden Research Center on November
9, 2006, starting at 9am. Cost is 25$.
Held in the unconference style, there will be no pre-planned speakers
or agendas. As a first agenda item, there will be a call for session
ideas that the participants themselves will give. So come prepared to
share what you know!
There will also be a SpeedDemo session to show off your RoR
application. You will have 5 minutes to present your application before
the horn sounds and the groups move on. Each participant will vote on
the best application! The applications don't need to be commercially
polished; we like seeing the personal stuff you hacked together too!
