Gearing up for Railsconf

In two weeks, Pat and I will be in scenic Portland for Railsconf, where we're looking forward to meeting really smart people doing cool things with Ruby on Rails. From the schedule, there're going to be a lot of good ideas being talked about, and we're excited to have the opportunity to add to that with my talk about some of the work we've been doing here at Viget with static sites. To help make sure that people get something useful from the talk, we're informally opening up the Q&A (or at least the Q part) a little early. If you have any questions about using Rails to build or maintain a mostly static site, feel free to ask them in the comments here, and I'll try to address them during the session. Just as a reminder, the talk will cover a range of topics around Rails and static sites - reasons both for and against using Rails, several iterations of the mini-framework we're using at Viget for static sites, and ways to make that mini-framework more useful in various contexts. So, fire away! PS If you're interested in chatting with Pat or me (we're nice guys, and we're hiring Rails developers...), you can check out our anticipated schedules at MyConfPlan: Pat, Ben
