In a single day David Geary posted two great blog entries!
His first post describes his sweltering Rails presentation in an un-air-conditioned auditorium (during a heat wave). He did something that was pure genius—he had a volunteer from the audience come up on stage and develop a Rails web application of his own choice (with David’s guidance). What an incredibly effective way to demonstrate the power and simplicity of Rails! I’m going to have to work this in to my own presentations.
His second post was a subtle comic masterpiece. I’m not going to spoil it for you though… you’ll just have to go read it for yourself.
