Rails 1.0 brought us a revolutionary way to think about web development. Rails 2 brought us a cleaner, stable day-to-day API for building applications in Rails. And Rails3 brings us speed, extensibility, and a richer ecosystem.
In this talk, Yehuda will walk you through some of the new features in Rails 3, including a more powerful router and a more expressive way to design web sites that serve double-duty as web services.
But the real user-facing improvements in Rails3 come from a documented and stable plugin API. You will learn the recommended ways to hook into Rails to extend existing functionality or even swap out a Rails component for one of your own without losing the integration Rails is so famous for.
