Session

Teaching Rails at a University

Carsten Bormann, Prof., TZI Uni Bremen

Date: Wednesday 19 September 2007
Time: 17:05 - 17:50
Location: Saal Maritim C

So far, formal education at the Universitaet (research university) level has been almost entirely untouched by the Rails phenomenon. Carsten Bormann will describe how he taught a successful yearly Rails course and review how Ruby and Rails have changed research approaches at the Center for Computing Technologies (TZI) of the Universitaet.

What are appropriate subjects for a Rails course at a research university?

What are success factors for organizing such a course?

The main objective of this talk is to gather educators interested in Rails for a fruitful discussion; depending on who else might want to contribute to this subject, this might be extended into a longer, coordinated slot. (Rails experience of attendees is less important.)
