indy.rb - The Indianapolis Ruby Brigade Monthly Meetup

 


Indy.rb November 2012 Hackfest

What


Microframework Hack-off


Wat


We will split into several small groups (4, at the moment). Each group would be assigned a different web micro-framework to use to build a blog - posts, comments, and tags. After 60 minutes, each group will discuss with the other groups what they liked or did not like about their micro-framework.


Why


Presentations on micro-frameworks are well and good, but when does anyone have the time to really use it? When was the last time someone pointed out a micro-framework (not named Sinatra), you thought it looked cool, and you actually built something with it. Probably never. This way we'll all learn something about a micro-framework because we'll have actually worked with one. Perhaps we'll even be inspired to use it again, or use one of the other group's assigned micro-frameworks.


The Frameworks


Not Sinatra. Sinatra is something everyone has used, at this point. However, if you have any other !Sinatra recommendations please make them. (Padrino is Sinatra, and it's also not a micro-framework.) (... I could be talked into Sinatra for a group comprised of people who have never used Sinatra, especially if that means more, smaller groups.)

 

 

If you have other suggestions, please send them along!
