The Vancouver Ruby/Rails December Meetup

  • Dec 3, 2007 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Title: Using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) with Rails Talk description: Amazon's Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an online storage system. It can be used for backup, serving assets for your Rails application, storing and streaming large media files or storing customer generated assets. The AWS/S3 gem, written by Marcel Molina, provides an elegant interface to Amazon S3. I'll be talking about how S3 works, how to use it in your Ruby scripts and Rails applications and showing off some example code. Bio: Scott Patten is a freelance web developer based in Vancouver. He fell in love with Ruby and Rails while creating Plot-O-Matic, a scientific graphing web application. Scott blogs about Rails, deploying Rails apps, AJAX, Amazon Web Services and whatever else he's working on that's interesting at
http://spattendesign..... Note: I'm changing the date to the first Monday of the month, in order to not overlap with the Python group. The location is once again The Network Hub--thanks very much to them for hosting our meetup so comfortably and conveniently.

    Scott gave a really good introduction to S3; the live demo was especially useful.

    Learned more about using amazon web services with rails; was an informative session. I should have stuck around to talk more about it afterwards, but had to leave early, so maybe next time.
