First pictures from Canada on Rails...

Posted by Wed, 12 Apr 2006 02:00:00 GMT

Jeremy and I are flying up tomorrow… but it appears that Rails developers are flocking to Vancouver, B.C.

Check out the Flickr photostream… we created a Canada on Rails group. :-)

Into Vancouver

If you’re going to be at Canada on Rails... join the group and post your photos! :-)

It seems that I missed the big 5000 for RubyURL. I just noticed that the front page is showing, “5171 happy rubyurls to date.”

Oh the memories...

Ruby on Rails, Refactoring Databases, and the Legacy System

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 ( and let us know. :-)
