This talk is a distillation of some of the practical tactics that Dave's development team at MetroStar Systems has used to create highly successful FaceBook applications using Rails, including real-life systems like PollCast and Iran Voices. Facebook is the world's largest social network, with over 400 million members. The talk also discusses the ramifications of the latest game-changing announcements from Facebook's F8 Conference and how these changes are affecting Facebook development.
The second talk will be a quick presentation by Dave Bock on using RVM and Gemsets to better organize your projects.
