Ruby for Startups Talk at Lone Star Ruby Conference

Today I gave a talk about my experiences writing the code for OtherInbox, called Ruby for Startups. The slides are below. Hope you find them interesting!

The design principals from the first slide come from Russ Olsen's book, Design Patterns in Ruby (and originally from Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software).

Vote up JavaScript talks for SXSW 2010

Attending JSConf 2009 was a real eye-opener for me: there are a lot of people using JavaScript in really interesting ways to do phenomenal things inside and outside of the browser. Projects like Phonegap, Titanium, CouchDB, SproutCore, and Cappuccino have the potential to transform many aspects of computing or at least point the way to some new paradigms.

To keep the conversation going, this led me to propose one talk and one panel for SXSW 2010:

Building Rich Web Apps with SproutCore
The JavaScript Applications Renaissance

If those sound intriguing, please consider voting at the above links, or better yet leave a comment expressing your support.

There are several other JavaScript related talks that I hope you will check out as well:
