RailsConf Europe 2008: Hacking the Mid-End

Michael Bleigh and Chris Selmer gave a talk at RailsConf Europe 2008 entitled “Hacking the Mid-End: Advanced Rails UI Techniques.” If you had a chance to attend, please take a moment to evaluate the session. If not, hopefully this post will help you understand a bit of what you missed!

This talk was aimed at being an introduction to the role of a mid-end developer; someone who facilitates the back-end and front-end developers and also writes the javascript interaction layer using Unobtrusive Scripting. You can view the slides embedded below, or you can download the slide deck directly.

The Rails app that we developed during the talk is available on GitHub with all of the completed code. If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks to everyone who came and saw the talk!
