Thomas Baustert and Ralf Wirdemann are working on the German book for Ruby on Rails and they’re also spreading the word around the country. Two days ago they did the Java Forum Stuttgart, which is a gathering of some 800 Java programmers. Ralf summarizes the feedback:
Our presentation was also well attended by more than 100 people. We got excellent feedback and many developers were impressed about the simplicity and less code of Rails application.
Very nice. It’ll be interesting to see if a similar reaction will be had at JAOO when I enter the lion’s cave.
