Interest in Ruby on Rails has grown incredibly, as “Rails” has made
its way into mainstream computing. Interest is growing in-part because
of how much fun & productive programming can be when you use a
framework that emphasizes common sense, elegance and readability. Obie
Fernandez will present two tutorials based on his bestselling book,
“The Rails Way”. The morning session provides a basic introduction to
the main Rails concepts and programming techniques. In the afternoon,
material will be given about effectively building and deploying real
applications using Rails.

***Special Book Give-Away! Three attendees during each tutorial will
win a free copy of Obie’s book, “The Rails Way”. Register today and
you may be one of the six lucky winners.
