Slides from my Rails Underground 2009 talk

Posted by Fri, 24 Jul 2009 15:37:00 GMT

Hello from London!

Am currently enjoying the talks at Rails Underground 2009 in London and had the pleasure to be one of the first speakers at the conference. My talk covered a collection of what our team considers best practices. Best practices that aid in the successful launch of a web application and covered a few Rails-specific topics as well.

I’ll be sharing some posts in the coming week(s) that’ll expand on some of these topics as promised to the audience.

Since I covered a wide range of topics, I decided to share my slides online. They won’t provide as much context (as I’m not speaking as you’ll look at them), but they might hint at some of the topics that I covered. There was a guy video taping the talks… so I assume that a video of my talk will be posted online in the near future.

Until then… here are the slides

Slides: Rails meets the Legacy World

Posted by Wed, 04 Oct 2006 00:50:00 GMT

Just got back to my hotel room after giving my talk, Rails meets the legacy world here at Ruby on Rails seminar at AjaxWorld in Santa Clara, California.

As promised, I wanted to post some the slides from my talk today.

A few weeks ago, I announced the Ruby on Rails Legacy mailing list, which I also talked about in my talk. I invite you all to stop by and ask questions… and help the community grow.

If there was one thing that I wanted to really express in my talk… it was that you’re not alone. You’re not the only one faced with a situation where you need to work around legacy conventions, opinions, and politics.

...you’re… not… alone. ;-)

Heading out to go see James Adam talk about plugins… !
