The Ins and Outs of Rails Engines

Chris Irish (@supairish) of Burst Software, a local ruby on rails development company, will be presenting on the ins and outs of Rails Engines. What they are, how do they work, how can you leverage them within your apps, how do you test them, and some gotchas learned while using them. You may have used them already and didn't even know it as some very popular Rails gems are engines under the hood. Chris has been doing Rails development for the past 7 years, runs Burst Software out of Chandler, AZ, and enjoys making music in his free time.

The PaaS model makes it easy to get an app deployed, but getting the most out of the platform requires additional understanding of the infrastructure.
