Canada on Rails conference in Vancouver, Apr 13-14

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Canada on Rails
conference takes place Apr 13-14 in Vancouver.
Until I saw where it was I was thinking of going.
But Vancouver, well that’s a bit too far.
Maybe Ottawa, or Montréal; but not *Vancouver*.


Thanks to their page, I found out about a
Rails podcast.
I will have to listen and see what it’s like.

Right now I am trying to get Rails running under IIS 5, which is proving a challenge.
Fortunately there are a few pages
like this one
that help.

May move to Typo soon..

a blog publishing app similar to WordPress
(which I’m currently using for all my blogs)
is undergoing a website facelift, and is
being seen more often.

Typo is based on Rails, of course.
I am hoping to take it and turn it into the blog software I’ve always wanted.
One wherein everyone posts to a single database, and “sites” are determined by filtering that pool.
Personal sites take all posts by that person, tech sites take all the “tech” postings, etc.
I think it sucks that I have to decide to either post in
or Tech Tok.

TrimJunction – Rails in JavaScript

Sunday, May 15th, 2005

The TrimJunction project is an attempt to port Rails over to JavaScript.
Egad, I wasn’t aware that JavaScript had things like SQL connectivity.
This is an interesting development, since many, many more sites support JavaScript than support Ruby and Rails.

Hm, trying out a Technorati tag..

More lighthttpd mentions

It seems that the Firefox of web servers is gaining a lot of traction:
Should I consider lighttpd?
Benchmarking lighttpd
The rise of lighttpd as the alternative web server

The benchmarking in particular is impressive.
