Developing the front end used to be by far my least favorite part of working on Rails apps. But when I found Backbone and Coffeescript things completely changed for me, and a whole lotta folks in Ruby/Rails community are finding the same thing. We at Gaslight Software are bringing our 2-day intensive course in Backbone and Coffeescript to San Francisco on November 7th and 8th at the same wonderful facilities which held GoGaRuCo. We'll be digging in deep and learning by doing as we build an application together over 2 days.
Your front end code can be as beautiful as your server-side Ruby. Come see how.
We hope to see you there!
