Utah Web Conference — Thursday, October 14, 2010 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM (MT)
The first Utah Web Conference. A low-key, 2 hour event this first time around. Little Ceaser’s Pizza for all.
•6:30-6:40 Welcome – Ryan Florence
•7:15-7:45 Ruby on Rails 3 – Zach Pendleton
Springhill Suites Thanksgiving Point
2447 W Executive Parkway
Lehi, UT 84043
The conference was extremely excellent. I highly recommend attending again — Ryan is going to try to host this event monthly. I thought I’d attach my notes from the conference right in this post.
Before the three scheduled speakers started
Ryan talked about Google Insights — “With Google Insights for Search, you can compare search volume patterns across specific regions, categories, time frames and properties.”
jQuery in US — Shows Utah #2
ajax — Shows Utah #3
jQuery worldwide — Shows an upward trend
nodejs — Shows a serious upward trend (but not much data)
Some of the terms that caught my interest: CommonJS, RequireJS, Transporter, Nodules, JSO NSchema, RQL.
Zach Pendleton: Ruby on Rails 3
Very good demo of how to use Ruby as a Rapid Prototyping Tool, or RAD. Zach built a functional blog in minutes.
