Might be lastest, but certainly not leastest, Why the Lucky Stiff from RailsConf 2006 in Chicago.
Humor, music and animation all in a little over an hour of keynote video goodness.
And that, dear friends, concludes the RailsConf 2006 Keynote Series. We hope youâ€™ve enjoyedâ€¦ even the buggers who complained about the Flash players weâ€™ve been using to present these to you.
Speaking of which, I did a search to see how many incoming links there are to the RailsConf Keynote Page. The magical number: 1,236.
Thatâ€™s just plain nutty. I think back to something I think Rich said at the conference, maybe it was Dave Thomas, not really sure anymore, but someone said it: just a few years ago the interest in Rails was neglegible. It just wasnâ€™t known and so few were learning it, studying it, working on it, mastering it, you get the idea.
Our shop, which has/had been Java (cue the boo/hiss) is releasing its first Rails commercial application with more to follow. If youâ€™re interested in learning more, visit the Rails page and scroll down.
