To avoid feeling like I have neglected my blog lately… I wanted to point out a few things.

First of all… there is a nice new book that was sitting at Powells technical bookstore just a few hours ago… and is now sitting on my desk. I read a few pages on the bus ride home today of Refactoring Database: Evolutionary Database Design. It’s a Martin Fowler signature book and you can read more by Scott W. Ambler (one of the authors) at Agile Data. So far it seems like a good book if you’re into database schemas and if your a fan of the Refactoring scene. :-)

In other news… Jeremy and I are preparing for our journey up to Vancouver, B.C. this week. Jeremy will be presenting his talk about i18n and Ruby on Rails… and I’ll be presenting my talk about using Ruby on Rails with Legacy databases. I look forward to meeting those of you who are making the trip to Canada on Rails (which is sold-out!) and if you don’t catch us there… we will also be presenting at RailsConf 2006!

If you’re going to be in Vancouver this week and would like to meet us for some drinks, hacking, or whatever… stop by on #canadaonrails (irc.freenode.net) and let us know. :-)

    Hi Robby,

    As said before I wrote a small recipe on integration of RoR with MySQL legacy database: http://fora.pragprog.com/rails-recipes/write-your-own/post/84

    I also began to write a small doc on it, but for now it’s not yet fully completed:
