interest was expressed at the last meeting on the upcoming ruby talk.
here are the details.    Rob has attended the perl meetings in the past
(until getting too busy writing the book) and has mentioned that he'll
be visiting the perl group again.   and despite the proclamation in the
WHO: line of the announcement i doubt that Mr. Orsini claims to be the
author of Ruby on Rails ;-).

Rob will give a 1 hour overview of Rails including server setup, admin

What is Ruby on Rails? "Rails is a full-stack framework for developing
database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control
pattern." What that means, basically, is that it lets programmers write
applications without needing to worry too much about the boring details.
Alternately: it's a a new, very popular way to create dynamic websites
quickly and easily.  Even if you're not a programmer you'll likely
eventually want to deploy a Rails application, and maybe even customize it a
little for your site's needs.

Who's Rob Orsini? In addition to being the author of O'Reilly's recently
released Rails Cookbook, Rob is an open source developer living in northern
California. He's currently working for O'Reilly Media, in their production
software group. Previously, Rob was the webmaster at Industrial Light &
Magic, where he developed applications in support of the special effects
industry. Rob has been programming the web since 1998, and upon discovering
Rails, hopes to continue for many more years to come.
