June 2013 Meeting Announcement

Rails for the .NET Developer

“You live a new life for every new language you speak.
If you know only one language, you live only once.” — Czech proverb

It’s good to learn new languages and environments. Different languages solve the same problems in different ways. By learning several different approaches, you can help broaden your thinking and identify the right tool for the right job.

As someone who has spent the last few years using both environments on a daily basis, we will compare and contrast web development in the Microsoft .NET world vs. web development using the Ruby on Rails stack. We will compare the languages, the tooling, the communities, and the frameworks. This session will help the .NET developer get started down the Rails rabbit hole.
