Sam Ruby takes Rails to Sri Lanka FOSSSL

Posted by admin

We suspected a pattern was emerging as IBM’s Sam Ruby first at OSCON reenacted the original joke from etech, then posted about the Rails Confidence Builder, and finally combined that work with Atom using acts_as_tree. Yes, something was in the cards.

And Sam has now played another power-hand in favor of Ruby on Rails:

Next month, I will be presenting at FOSSSL ’05 in Colombo, Sri Lanka; first a keynote on Friday entitled The Case for Dynamic Languages, then a tutorial on Saturday entitled Riding Ruby-On-Rails.

That’s awesome! If I didn’t say it earlier, let me repeat: Welcome to the party, Sam. It’s great to have you here. We’re honored. Now just one tiny nitpick: “Ruby on Rails”, not “Ruby-On-Rails” :)
