aka, “Better late than never”…..
Back in March 2007, the Boston MySQL User Group (http://mysql.meetup.com/137) watched and heard Brian DeLacey give a tutorial of Ruby on Rails, including its interaction with MySQL using ActiveRecord.
I knew absolutely nothing about Ruby on Rails before attending the presentation, other than Ruby was a language and people were saying that Rails made for easy development. After the presentation, I knew enough to start coding!
Brian is an excellent speaker, and this presentation is long overdue. (I’d tried creating the video before, during and after the MySQL Users Conference back in April, and my application kept crashing. I guess it just needed a break, because I fired it up today and it seemed to save the movie OK. Please let me know if you watch the presentation and something seems wrong).
