My wonderful hosts from Roskilde University has completed the editing process on the footage from my Ruby on Rails, Take II presentation. It's a two-hour show split into a 1-hour presentation followed by a 1-hour tutorial.
If your default player won't eat that, Quicktime will play the feed. Copy rtsp://komm-video.ruc.dk/20040506/rubyonrails.mp4, pick Open URL in New Player, paste, enjoy.
I'm still downloading it, but my friend says i should get into ruby and rails ;) actually i think you know him, but i wont tell you who he is:P i think i read somewhere he helped with the postgresql and sqlite databases. anyways that is all i have to say until after i see the presentation.
wonderful video, but beware: our expectations from rails are getting bigger and bigger, :)
Seeing the presentation I've been thinking: did you thought about adding a what-could-go-wrong/common-problems document in the rails packages?
I love when there is somethoing like that in libraries or apps, and thinks it's really useful for beginner users
Amir: I haven't had a spare moment to look at the code and won't before the bachelor's project is done on Wednesday. I'll be sure to track it down and report back — I'm sure it's something silly ;).
Gabriele: Right. I hope the balloon can hold all that hot air I'm pumping it with.
Michael: Are you using CGI or mod_ruby? Try having a look in the error_log from Apache. Ruby dumps the stack trace in there. Also, make sure to send proper headers before attempting to output, like with "puts CGI.new.header".
Is it possible to get a(n) alpha/beta version of Rails? I am thinking of updating my personal site, and would like to build it on Rails and Ruby - I am thinking of making a l33t blog system, and with your presentation it looked fairly easy! :-D
I am also running a Mac - - and I just stole an idea from you - - Now I also have some virtual desktops, with the l33t cube effect :-D It's a good way to work, much better than using dock or tab+cmd.
cocoaMySQL is also very nice - I was just looking for something like this (hmm kinda of weird that google didn't find it) - - have used phpmyadmin for some time and it just lacks speed.
I've never been very clever about installing new Apache modules—Mark Liyanage's Entropy Apache & PHP package has really saved me in the past. I'm now trying to enable eruby and mod_ruby on my iBook, but I'm having a devil of a time.
Does anyone know of a good (comprehensive, hand-holding) resource to get Ruby working with Panther?
JP: You surely tried http://www.google.com/search?q=mod_ruby+OS+X?

Sorry, found this page just today and the video appears to be gone (both the stream and the downloadable version). Right? Does this have to do with the fact that the page was mentioned in comp.lang.ruby this morning? Will the video be made available again?
I am watching the video, and there seems to be a big jump at 1:33:07 -- the very first controller has been created with script/new_controller and a model is about to be created with scripts/new_model, but then suddenly we see an edit of "post.rb".
Those missing minutes would really help me to understand model objects vs controller objects and follow along. Any chance of a fixed video being made available?
