[GNHLUG] NHRuby.org Meeting Tuesday, May 20: Rack and NetBeans.

Tue May 13 13:54:33 EDT 2008

The NH Ruby and Rails User Group will hold its May 2008 meeting at the
usual location, RMC Research in Portsmouth. This month the meeting
topics will include an overview of Rack and getting the most out of
NetBeans 6.1.

Nick Plante will give a presentation on Rack, a modular web server
interface for Ruby. Similar to Python's WSGI, Rack helps to abstract the
interface between your web servers and application servers, providing a
common gateway interface for low level HTTP operations. This allows you
to build a web framework that runs on any number of web app servers
which are also Rack-compliant.


Scott Garman will give a live demo of the NetBeans 6.1 IDE, discussing
some of the recent improvements with v6.1 as well as tips for maximizing
your efficiency while using NetBeans for Rails and web development. It
will include an example of debugging a Rails application.


WHEN: Tuesday, April 15, 2008. 7-9 PM.
WHERE: RMC Research Offices, 1000 Market Street, Portsmouth, NH.
