This talk will introduce Ruby on Rails. The Ruby programming language
and its Rails framework are ideal for programming Web applications and
APIs in Web 2.0. Ruby's modern and dynamic object-oriented features
make it an excellent language for rapid prototyping and integration of
various Web APIs. Rails' superb support for rapid Web application
development, database access, and AJAX, make it well suited for
creating front-ends and back-ends to the next generation of Web
applications and APIs.

Dr. E. Michael Maximilien, (aka "max") is a research staff member at
IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. Max is a
founding member and contributor to three worldwide Java and UML
industry standards. Max's primary research interests lie in
distributed systems and software engineering, especially Web APIs and
services, mashups, social software, Web 2.0, SOA, and Agile methods
and practices. Max is an active participant and contributor to
communities related to Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and Agile methods and
practices, inside and outside of IBM. Reach Max via his Web site
