Two full days of informative and timely sessions covering Ruby on Rails and the future of web application engineering. The sessions are not simply blog posts, but will be full of wisdom, experience, lessons learned, war stories, panel discussions, and most importantly debate.

Aloha on Rails embodies the aloha spirit of peace and compassion, and we welcome everyone from all the web development communities. We are offering a full day tutorial before the conference, brought to you by RailsBridge. This tutorial session will teach you how to build, test, and deploy a Rails application. If you build for the web, you will find aloha at this conference. The Rails community has much to share and learn from, all are welcome!

Is there a group registration discount? I'm putting together a group of independent Rails hackers, and every buck we can save goes into the 'food and beer' pool... :)

New to Rails? Learn how to build, test, and deploy your Rails application at our full day Rails Training.

I may be biased :), but I think you'll like Rails on JRuby. JRuby is incredibly fast (faster than Ruby 1.8.6) and they done a lot of work to make deployment incredibly easy.

A comparison of JRuby on Rails to Groovy/Grails would also be very interesting for Java web developers. However, there are so many different web app frameworks, that I understand if you want to focus on just one.

You're in luck. We'll have the lead for JRuby and will have sessions on how to use JRuby to deploy (very easily, it turns out) Rails projects into a Java environment.

Turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too!

Hope to see you at the conference!

UH MIS is trying a couple projects in Rails, but most are in Java so far. So, I've started using Groovy and plan to try Grails soon too. I'd love to see some content about that alternative, for shops that are committed to Java, to get into a high-productivity, dynamic, coding-by-convention web framework.

How to calculate the value of Aloha on Rails. Hint: it's an incredibly good value!
