RailsConf Europe: Major Program Updates

RailsConf Europe is Speeding Ahead

The premier Rails event in Europe is rapidly approaching (17-19 September 2007, Maritim proArte Hotel, Berlin) and the conference chairs have been adding some great speakers. Recently added include:

* Dr. Roy T. Fielding will be delivering a keynote talk, entitled "The rest of REST." Dr. Fielding is the primary architect of HTTP/1.1, and co-author of the HTTP and URI standards. He is known to Rails developers for having defined and introduced the REST architectural style, a cornerstone of most modern Rails applications and a huge influence on the evolving shape of the Rails framework itself.

* In "The Rails Way" tradition, Rails core developers Michael Koziarski and Marcel Molina will host a session of live code- review and best-practices advice.
