MerbCamp Keynote and Introducing Nanite

Posted by ezmobius Sat, 11 Oct 2008 18:41:00 GMT

Just a quick post to share some news. I just finished giving my keynote at MerbCamp about past and present merb and the core tenets of merb development.

I also introduced Nanite: self assembling cluster of ruby processes

You can watch the full video of my talk here: Keynote Video

WMV format ^^ Thanks to Matt Jaynes for mirroring the video on a higher bandwidth connection

And you can see my slides on slideshare below.

Thanks to all the merbcamp organizers, the venue is awesome and I have never spoken at a ruby conference that streamed all of the talks live. Very cool setup here.

I will follow up with some more posts on nanite and the what why and how of it shortly. But you can get a pretty good overview of it by watching my talk.
