Hi!

I'm pleased to announce the January meeting for the Madison, WI Ruby
on Rails group.  Scott Fradkin will be presenting Monday, 1/22/07 on
"Web Development Framework Comparisons" - comparing a demo app in
Rails, Groovy/Grails, and J2EE with Hibernate and Spring.

Full details and directions are available below or at the schedule
page on the wiki:
http://www.madisonrails.com/wiki/pages/schedule.

*side note* we are also looking to do an informal code n' coffee in
early January - check the wiki if you can make that.

Presentation Summary:
"Web Development Framework Comparisons" compares and contrasts web
development of a simple store application using three different
frameworks and languages: Java/J2EE (using Hibernate and Spring), Ruby
on Rails, and Groovy/Grails.  Programming environment setup using
Eclipse will be shown as well as live code examples of the application
running in each of the environments.

Bio:

development experience ranging from C and C++ development to Java/J2EE
development.  He has worked on many large and small projects over the
years as a developer, mentor, and designer.  He is a firm believer that
agile programming practices help build better, higher quality products.
