We're trying something a bit different this week.
There is an almost endless number of frameworks for building web applications available these days.
No longer is writing an HTTP server from scratch a prerequisite for starting your web app. Now there are so many frameworks and techniques to choose from, where to start, what to do? We'll hear about some of the smaller, lesser known frameworks and opening up the floor for anyone to share their experiences with or opinions about frameworks beyond Rails. At the end, we hope to spark interest in alternatives and also appreciate what Rails offers.
It'll be a different format as well, we'll be doing an 'open fishbowl' format, inviting group interaction in a big way.
If you'd like to read up on the format, check this out.
NOTE: There will be drinks at this event instead of the usual pizza.
