Since Rails 3 was announced in January, the team has been working feverishly to put together a more modular architecture that can be used both by plugins and power users. The goal is to create an explicit plugin API that users can rely on between releases. Writing against the plugin API carries the same promises as development against Rails’ public APIs.

Come learn about the architecture of Rails 3, and how you can leverage it to build more powerful applications and reusable components. In particular, we will be covering the new architecture of ActionController and ActionView, as well as the architecture for controlling how templates are loaded and compiled.

This will be a technical session; expect to see and read code!
