My Talk at RubyNation 2010
I will be speaking at RubyNation 2010. My topic is “Leveraging Rails to Build FaceBook Applications.” This is a distillation of some of the practical tactics that my development team at MetroStar Systems has used to create highly successful FaceBook applications using Rails, including real-life systems like PollCast and Iran Voices. FaceBook is the world’s largest social network, with over 600 million members.
