Ruby on Rails One-Day Seminar: Introducing Ruby on Rails – the Pain-Killer for Web Developers

October 3, Santa Clara: All the Ruby on Rails You Can Eat for $100

According to its founding light David Heinemeier Hansson (pictured), Ruby on Rails (RoR) is about "taking the pain away and making you happy."

Hansson, who was a speaker at SYS-CON Events' inaugural "Real-World AJAX" One-Day Seminar earlier this year, says he knowingly advises people, before they try Rails, to cut their teeth in web-development on the mainstream offerings first. "Once you've tried developing a substantial application in Java or PHP or C# or whatever," he says, "the difference in Rails will be readily apparent. You gotta feel the hurt before you can appreciate the cure."

Those attending SYS-CON Events' "Real-World Ruby on Rails" One-Day Seminar, on October 3, 2006 - many of whom by definition have already felt the hurt - can experience the happiness first-hand, when top Ruby on Rails practitioners share their insights, expertise, and code.

The Seminar takes place in the Santa Clara Convention Center, colocated with AJAXWorld Conference & Expo (2-4 October, 2006), and as a special offer to help spread the good word about RoR, SYS-CON Events is inviting developers to attend the RoR One-Day Seminar for a special Seminar-Only price of $100.
