Silicon Valley Rails Meetup, Mar 2009 – Slides & Pics

Filed under: web2.0 — arungupta @ 4:00 am

I presented at Silicon Valley Rails Meetup yesterday. The official attendance says 79 and the kitchen area (for the presentation) was indeed packed!

The demo gods were hovering very much around and required me to reboot the machine – live during the presentation. Have you ever rebooted Mac because of a slow performance, smack in the middle of a demo ? ;-)

Here is a quote from the meetup:

The big win with glassfish is that it gives you the same environment in deployment and development.

The slides are available here. And some pointers to get more information:

  • Dynamic Languages in GlassFish
  • GlassFish Gem
  • Project Kenai
  • JRuby/Rails/GlassFish Success Stories

And another one …

Thanks to Michael and Jerry for being the wonderful hosts!

Drop a comment on this blog if you are using GlassFish for your Rails/Merb/Sinatra/… deployments.

  2. Hi Arun,

    During the presentation you mentioned that you would demo the embedded glassfish v3 mode. You didn’t get to do it, which IMO was good, because such a demo would not be appropriate for the audience at the meetup. But I think that such a feature would be really interesting for the java crowed, and I’d definitely like to know more about it – how about to show that off in one of your future screencasts? ;-)

  3. Igor, Embedded GlassFish v3 in Rails context is the Gem :) I got some entries on GlassFish Embedded in general at: Or you can follow for the latest on Embedded mode.

    Thanks for the blog pointer.
