Sinatra web app under Docker - By Cayce Balara
Sinatra is a DSL for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort. It can fill the wide open space of needs that exist between "problems that can be solved with a static site" and "problems that require a full-stack web application". Sinatra doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but if you need some, they are easily added.

In this presentation, I will run through how (and why) I spun up a small web application using Sinatra and Docker.

Ed Note: the "why" is almost certainly more entertaining than the how.

P.S. I'm told that Slim and Lumen are similar "micro-frameworks" written in PHP.
We're always looking for topics and speakers. So feel free to contact the organizers.
Robert Half will sponsor pizza. So please RSVP, so we know the headcount for ordering food.

We'll be hands-on. So please bring your laptops.
