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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
