On Thursday May 17, Pragmatic Studio will be giving an all-day Rails Guidebook tutorial for charity in conjunction with RailsConf. While there is no fee to attend the tutorial, a $75 (minimum) tax-deductible donation to one or more select charities is required.

To register for this tutorial please go to the Pragmatic Studios JustGive.org web site, choose your charity, and make your donation. Once you register you will receive a donation receipt via email. This receipt will need to be presented at the door for admission into the Rails Guidebook Tutorial.

Tutorial Description:
The Ruby on Rails web application framework has built up a tremendous head of steam over the last year. Fueled by some genuine benefits and an impressive portfolio of real-world applications already in production, Rails is destined to continue making significant inroads this year. And with the release of Rails 1.2 earlier this year, there's never been a better time to climb aboard.

But you wouldn't want to take the train and end up at a new destination without a guidebook. Well, this tutorial is your conference guidebook to Rails. We'll show you the highlights of Rails: the roadmap, points of interest, and some of the local language you'll need to make the most of the talks at RailsConf (and beyond). We'll talk about (and demonstrate) all the key features of Rails, including the latest features as of the day of the tutorial. And we'll put it all in perspective so you can cut through the hype surrounding Rails and start building killer web applications.

Speakers:
This tutorial is given by Dave Thomas and Mike Clark who wrote the books on Ruby and Rails. They also teach the popular Pragmatic Studio: Ruby on Rails training

Note: You must be registered for RailsConf to attend this tutorial
