UPDATE: Ruby on Rails has been released!
It's official. I'll be giving the previously discussed two-hour presentation to all the stuff I've been working on for the best many months. The presentation is once again entilted Ruby on Rails to Basecamp and will consist of a one-hour introduction to Ruby, Rails, and Basecamp followed by a one-hour tutorial on Rails.
It'll be Thursday, May 6th at 13.00-15.00 in Biografen 41.1, Roskilde Universitetscenter. It's free to come and there's plenty of space. So do come if you're interesting in Basecamp, Rails, Ruby, or all of the above.
Ruby on Rails to Basecamp
V/ David Heinemeier Hansson
Ruby on Rails to Basecamp, is the topic for the first hour. You'll find out how two parts technology and one part directed inspiration conspired to build a successful online business in less than two man-months. Plus, see why cutting edge web-application development belongs to dynamic languages such as Ruby rather than traditional, mainstream static languages such as Java and C#.
With real-world demonstrations, the second hour will be spent in the trenches -- David will give a hands-on demonstration of how you can use the Ruby on Rails framework to quickly build a web-based application. See the code hit the keys in this real-world demonstration of the simple elegance and value of Ruby on Rails.

David studies Computer Science and Business Administration at the Copenhagen Business School on the third and final year of their Bachelor's program. He has dabbled in the fields of gaming journalism, marketing for hire, project management, and software development. Currently focusing on the latter for a variety of international customers.
Basecamp is a web-based project management and client extranet tool for creative services firms. Basecamp lets you manage projects (or simply ideas) and quickly create client/project extranets. It lets you and your clients (or just your own internal team) keep conversations, ideas, schedules, to-do lists, and more in a password-protected central location.
Rails is a soon-to-be-released web-application framework for Ruby. It’s built upon well-understood patterns for web development, which should make the seasoned web developer feel right at home and the newcomer welcome.
