Title: Stacks on the Tracks: using Ruby On Rails to build more efficient, maintainable webbased library applications
Author: Stearns, Chris
Abstract: 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.
