Might be lastest, but certainly not leastest, Why the Lucky Stiff from RailsConf 2006 in Chicago.

Humor, music and animation all in a little over an hour of keynote video goodness.

And that, dear friends, concludes the RailsConf 2006 Keynote Series. We hope you’ve enjoyed… even the buggers who complained about the Flash players we’ve been using to present these to you.

Speaking of which, I did a search to see how many incoming links there are to the RailsConf Keynote Page. The magical number: 1,236.

That’s just plain nutty. I think back to something I think Rich said at the conference, maybe it was Dave Thomas, not really sure anymore, but someone said it: just a few years ago the interest in Rails was neglegible. It just wasn’t known and so few were learning it, studying it, working on it, mastering it, you get the idea.

Our shop, which has/had been Java (cue the boo/hiss) is releasing its first Rails commercial application with more to follow. If you’re interested in learning more, visit the Rails page and scroll down.
