                            Ajai  Khattri
                            Ruby on Rails

   Last month, we got a look at the Ruby  scripting language, as Francis
   Hwang began showing us what makes Ruby different from other languages,
   and why it is his language of choice.  Now that we've got an idea of
   what Ruby  is, we're going to learn about Ruby on Rails.  Why does it
   bill itself as Web development that doesn't hurt?

   From the RoR site:

      Ruby on Rails is an open-source web framework that's optimized
      for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity.  It lets
      you write beautiful code by favoring convention over

      Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed
      web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern.
      From the Ajax in the view, to the request and response in the
      controller, to the domain model wrapping the database, Rails
      gives you a pure-Ruby development environment. To go live, all
      you need to add is a database and a web server.

   Those who attended last month's meeting learned a focus of Ruby is on
   the developer.  It comes as no surprise then that Ruby on Rails is
   also focused on the needs of developers.

   Our next meeting will be on August 30, 2006 at 6:30pm at IBM.
   Topic to be announced.
