RailsConf Europe is Speeding Ahead
The premier Rails event in Europe is rapidly approaching (17-19 September 2007, Maritim proArte
Hotel, Berlin) and the conference chairs have been adding some great speakers. Recently added
* Dr. Roy T. Fielding will be delivering a keynote talk, entitled "The
rest of REST." Dr. Fielding is the primary architect of HTTP/1.1,
and co-author of the HTTP and URI standards. He is known to
Rails developers for having defined and introduced the REST
architectural style, a cornerstone of most modern Rails
applications and a huge influence on the evolving shape of the
Rails framework itself.
* In "The Rails Way" tradition, Rails core developers Michael
Koziarski and Marcel Molina will host a session of live code-
review and best-practices advice.
