Toronto Ruby on Rails Project Night Returns Sept. 19th (Seaside, WebVelocity, and ActiveRecord)

After a much needed summer hiatus, the Toronto Ruby on Rails Project
Night ‘community’ is set to gather again on Friday September 19th at a
NEW location: the Rich Media Institute!

As some of you may realize, this is a new evening for us. I don’t
intend on having our get togethers on Friday, but September 19th is
very special.

I am pleased to have James Robertson, Cincom Smalltalk Product
Evangelist, joining us on his ‘Canadian Tour’ to look at Seaside and

WebVeocity is a new Smalltalk Development Environment that is oriented
around Seaside for Web Development and Glorp for Object/Relatonal
Mapping. Come and see how WebVelocity re-targets the Smalltalk
development experience into the Web Browser and simplifies the
challenge of learning a new environment for newcomers. We’ll even
build an entire application using Active Record and Scaffolding during
the presentation, with minimal programming. If you’re a fan of Ruby on
Rails, you need to come out and see this presentation!

We will also be joined by local Ruby on Rails developer Paul Doerwald,
who will examine insights gained from working with ActiveRecord
validation internals.

As always, it is the audience - and their participation - that really
makes these events great; so I hope you can all join us for this
special opportunity. These FREE presentations will take place on
September 19th starting at 6pm until approx 7:30pm at the Rich Media
Institute (156 Augusta Ave., Toronto).

Please email me at or leave a comment below if
you are attending - space is limited, please RSVP!
