Have you ever opened up a Rails application and you can tell it was someone's first Rails app after coming in from the Java world? Are you new to Rails and have wondered where your IOC container is, or why you don't have any interfaces (and what's with all of these underscores) ?

This talk walks through many of the common pitfalls that people run into coming from the Java world. I begin with simple idomatic issues (methods that end in a question mark, and underscores), to larger issues such as IOC containers and AOP programming. This talk is designed to dig into some of the deeper mental disconnect that many developers have when coming over to the Rails world.
