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.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
