Rubyology 11: BYOWS

Posted by @ChrisMatthieu

BYOWS - Build Your Own Web Server! In addition to touching on Microsoft's new SilverScreen multimedia framework and Joyent's SlingShot Rails deployment application, we cover some interesting Ruby web server code found in an older discounted Ruby 1.6.6 book. It's still applicable today and supports threading!

Posted by @ChrisMatthieu

In keeping up with our framework lessons, I selected two new scaffolding frameworks that add tons of cool AJAX and datagrid and scaffolding goodness to your applications with only a couple of commands! They are ActiveScaffold (formerly AjaxScaffold) and Streamlined. For a bonus, I also provide you with a sneak peak at another scaffolding framework called Auto-Admin.
