Rails Metal, Rack, and Sinatra
Location: Ballroom B
Rails 2.3 introduces a hot new feature: Rails Metal. Metal allows you to build Rack endpoints for selected URLs in your app. Optimize your high-frequency, low-complexity actions with Rails Metal and get a 2x – 3x performance boost.
Even better: you can use Sinatra, the microframework that everyone’s talking about, from Rails Metal. Capture the speed and elegance of Sinatra from within your existing Rails app!
This talk will provide a brief overview of the basics of Rack and Sinatra, so no prior knowledge of either project is required.
