Well, if you drive to Sebastopol (near Santa Rosa) in a week, you can hear a
lecture about the hottest server-end AJAX implementation, Ruby on Rails.
(See below.)  AJAX can be used to create some great things -- as well 
as some highly useful but also very proprietary things (like Google Maps).

 Subject: [NBLUG/Announce] General Meeting (2006/01/10) : Ruby on Rails

Hello NBLUG'ers,

This month our own Rob Orsini will be talking about the much hyped and
very popular Ruby on Rails development framework.


"Ruby on Rails is an open-source Web framework that's optimized for
programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. It lets you write
beautiful code by favoring convention over configuration.

Rob will demonstrate the creation of a simple database driven Web
application using the Rails framework. He'll also talk about some of the
best practices that Rails brings to the Web programming table and how
it, and projects like it, are making programming more fun."

Start: 2006/01/10 - 7:30pm
End: 2006/01/10 - 9:00pm
O'Reilly, Sebastopol, CA

We are always looking for speakers, so if you or anyone you know
would like to give a presentation to a group of friendly nerds, please
send an e-mail to speakers at nblug.org . Thank you, and I look forward
to seeing you all there at the next meeting.
