This 2-day intensive course will forever change the way you develop the front end of your web applications. For too long, many web developers have approached front end code as drudgery. No more! We'll help you build the skills to write front end code you can love every bit as much as your server-side Ruby code.
Rubyconf 2011 was last week, and there I managed to get a couple interviews including one with Matz the creator of Ruby himself. In Matz Keynote he talked about his project mruby, a smaller portable version of ruby for imbedded devices (and other applications). Matz also talked about the roadmap for Ruby, with Ruby 1.9.3’s release in the next week or two. After that he’s going to be looking forward to Ruby 2.0, which will hopefully get released sometime in 2013. Perhaps sometime around the 20th anniversary of the language itself.
Also at Rubyconf I ran into Wesley Beary who just had released Fog 1.0. Fog allows you to control lots of different cloud services using one API.
Tim Pease let me know about his gem Logging which provides a much more granular option for debugging your application.
Dr. Nic Williams is working as VP of Technology at Engine Yard and he's on the conference circuit preaching the benefits of using Threads effectively.
Ruby and Rails core committer Aaron Patterson was also at Rubyconf and talked to me about how you can help with fixing bugs in Rails.
Ruby5 is released Tuesday and Friday mornings. To stay informed about and active with this podcast, we encourage you to do one of the following:
A slow news week thanks to the distractions of rubyconf, but we have a full featured podcast for you - Formstastic 2.0 has been released, we have a good article about DCI, which is causing a bunch of conversation lately, koans for learning Coffeescript, gemstats, using LESS in the asset pipeline, and instructions for serving your piped assets over Amazon's Cloudfront CDN are all featured in this CodeSherpa-led Ruby5 expedition.
On the eve of Rubyconf we discuss Versioning your APIs, extracting domain models, partial reuse, Two-factor ssh authentication, Ruby timeout woes, Ruby 1.9.3 RC1, and we break the news that all your Rubies depend on ActiveSupport.
