Ruby on Rails: Will Barrett from Tall Green Tree

Have you toyed with Ruby on Rails or at least wondered if it was the right tool for you? The world of programming languages on the web is populated by many choices... some of them good tools for your work, some not. Come out on June 18 and hear Will Barrett from Tall Green Tree, Inc. in Evanston take the mystery out of Ruby on Rails. Whether you are a designer or a developer, you'll find Will's take on Ruby on Rails instructive and informative.

Will Barrett is President and Founder of Tall Green Tree, a company doing product development for promising startups. His acuity with Ruby on Rails in the world of startups makes him an authority you'll want to hear.

You'll learn:

  • Ruby on Rails—what is it?
  • A little history on Ruby on Rails
  • The Rails Way
  • What is Rails good for?
  • What Rails is not good for
  • How does it stack up against other web frameworks?

This session will be high level/accessible in some segments and "down to it" in others. Either way, you are sure to leave with more than you came with.

Note: We are not meeting the usual second Tuesday of the month due to a scheduling conflict at BooCoo Cultural Center. Come TUESDAY, JUNE 18 instead!

See you there!

    Who was the speaker a few months ago that talked about responsive websites? I think that she has a book coming out this summer?

      That would be Clarissa Peterson. Yup... her book was in the works when she presented earlier this year.
