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!

Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't note that the current RubyQuiz (pretty printing Pascal's Triangle) is the most popular quiz ever. Keep up the good work James!

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.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
