RailsConf 2006 is done, next up is the RailsConf Europe 2006
Well, the biggest news in the Ruby world this last week has been RailsConf (and of course, all the news that broke there). I didn't get to go, so I've been trying to follow the various blogs about how it went. You know things were good when you see comment's like this one (by Curt Hibbs), "My notes for this talk are completely blank because it was so engrossing that I forgot to write anything down!".
One big announcement was Streamlined, a new set of generators for Rails that actually produce production ready code instead of ugly scaffolding. It looks like a very cool step forward.
My favorite blogging about the conference is probably Curt's,
Eric Kastner also did a great job over on his blog.
You can always find interesting coverage of the Ruby world (and currently of RailsConf) over at RubyCorner. Are you signed up? Is your blog registered? Quick, run!
Thanks for reading. As always, I'd like to see your thoughts about what's been important/interesting in the Ruby world recently, so please leave a comment. See you next week.
