New Meetup: Merb, not rails? A practical introduction to a new framework.

From: Jon S.
Sent on: Monday, August 25, 2008 12:34 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The East Bay Ruby Meetup Group!

What: Merb, not rails? A practical introduction to a new framework.

When: September 16,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Merb, like rails, is a Ruby MVC framework for web application development. Unlike Rails, Merb is small, light-weight, and thread-safe. So what if it is theoretically superior because it is thread-safe (DHH forgive me)... when it comes to actually writing code and deploying software, does it save you real time and money?

I?ll share the lessons learned from my first merb deployment, a custom-built content management system for academics deployed via jruby to a java Tomcat web server. We?ll discuss how merb is constructed, how it compares to rails, how fast it is, and the nitty-gritty details of actual development.

Paul Boone is a software engineer and consultant specializing in lightweight application development using Ruby. See his blog at
