Stacks on the Tracks: using Ruby On Rails to build more efficient, maintainable webbased library applications
MetadataShow full item record
Ruby on Rails, is an open source web application framework written in Ruby that follows a Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture. It strives for simplicity and allowing real-world applications to be developed in less code than other frameworks and with a minimum of configuration. This session employs a real-time application development tutorial to demonstrate how small library-specific applications can be completed in hours instead of days; medium-sized applications in days instead of weeks; and large applications in weeks instead of months using RubyOnRails (http://rubyonrails.com) to the benefit of patrons and staff.
