Intridea Partner and open source crusader, Michael Bleigh, will be back in his hometown of Kansas City this week, presenting “Rails is the new Rails” at Ruby Midwest.
The sweeping changes brought on by Rails 3 and 3.1 haven’t just made our existing development patterns easier, they have opened up the ability for us to build new patterns that accomplish more in a more beautiful and efficient way. In this session you will see how thinking about new features in a different light can lead to real innovation for your development practices. Examples include baking routing constraints into your models, application composition with Rack, truly modular design with the asset pipeline, and more.
Coming off a huge month of open source development on OmniAuth (version 1.0.0 was just released this morning), and working onsite for a huge client in NYC on a cutting-edge Rails app, Michael is excited to share his recent insights on Rails 3. Be sure to catch his presentation on Friday, November 4th at 10:30 am, just after the morning break. Follow Michael on Twitter for updates from this (and upcoming) conferences!
