Speaker

Rob Orsini, author of the Rails Cookbook
Details

Rob will give a 1 hour overview of Rails including server setup, admin issues and templating.

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 eventually want to deploy some cool new Rails application, and maybe even customize it a little for your site's needs.

Meeting: Xen

Speaker

Luke S. Crawford and Neal K.
Details

Join Luke and Neal to hear about Xen, the exciting new technology that will make your life happier and more productive. (Don't believe anything they say to the contrary -- they're just old and cynical.)

Xen is a virtualization technology that offers nearly all the traditional advantages of virtualization with near-native speeds. Using Xen, administrators can partition users into separate virtual machines, developers can rapidly test network applications, home users can enjoy robust checkpoints and configuration management. Right now it's all hackerware, but the revolution is coming.

Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL is a simple to use tool to do MySQL backups and recovery. It provides enterprise level backup features such as scheduling, reporting and notification. The talk will cover the details of project (code is available under GPL), product features and roadmap. We will also talk about choices and challenges while backing up a MySQL based environment.
