Real-World RoR in other words will reflect the fact that, after less than a year, there are people using Rails for everything from social sites to mortgage applications to selling baby clothes to sending invoices to managing humanitarian efforts. Rails is already represented in just about any web-application domain you can imagine.

According to Hansson, Rails is about "The ability to quickly deliver functionality without feeling like a hack doing it" and it is in exactly that spirit that our "Real-World Ruby on Rails" One-Day Seminar will deliver an intense and high-octane day's education. Colocated with the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo, October 2-4, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, the One-Day Seminar is being held October 3.

By the end of the day one thing is certain: every Seminar attendee will know first-hand why it is that Ruby on Rails has been described as "Web 2.0 on Rocket Fuel"!!
