Last night I gave a presentation to the newly created Houston Dynamic Languages User Group, or HDLUG for short.
The title of the presentation was “A bunch of reasons to love ruby” and I think it went over well. I am not a ruby expert by any means, but I do practice it regularly and I enjoy spreading my enthusiasm with the language with others.
In the talk we covered:
- The Ruby Language
- RubyGems, such as hpricot, rake, and rspec
- Rails (I created a 5-minute blog demo)
- Heroku (we published the blog demo to the internet live during the talk)
- IronRuby (I created a WinForms project using IronRuby)
