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.

You will also learn how Rails3 became ORM and JavaScript library agnostic without sacrificing the tight integration with ActiveRecord and Prototype that makes Rails such a great full-stack framework.
