Justin and I will be delivering the Enterprise Ruby Studio for the Pragmatic Studio. First run is scheduled for Boston, MA, USA, Sept 11-13. You can find the outline, plus all the logistical details, here.
We're very excited to share our experiences with Ruby in the enterprise over the past few years: Rails, of course, and now Streamlined, but a lot of other things as well. Rinda and YAML are among our current favorites. We have found that Ruby has a rich set of libraries for common enterprise tasks. Equally importantly, it's the best mainstream language we know when you have to roll it yourself.
