October 2007 Presentation

Here's a detailed description of the presentation, as posted on web site of the Washington DC Ruby on Rails User Group. The meeting will be held October 18th, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, at George Washington University.

Using Rails to Create an Enterprise App: A Real-Life Case Study: It seems that most Rails apps are so-called "green-field" applications, i.e. - brand-new applications with no legacy baggage. Find out what it takes to use Rails to create an enterprise corporate application. This real-life case study of an actual AOL development effort will focus on how successful the effort was, the pitfalls that were encountered and the solutions that were devised. The discussion will also include tips for dealing with one of the nastiest legacy databases you'll ever encounter.

Speaker: David Keener is an IT professional, consultant and writer with over 20 years of experience. He is currently a web architect for America Online, where he has just completed and fielded AOL's first enterprise Rails app for internal corporate use.
