    I enjoyed Flip's presentation a lot. I felt like he was verbalizing intuitions and opinions that I had been forming myself during my years in software development. This, I think, is a sign of a good speaker.

      Thanks! I enjoyed learning about RESTRack. It seems to fill the gap between controller encapsulation of logic (truer MVC) and the block-syntax you see in Sinatra and Grape.
