Upcoming Conferences

We're looking forward to a few conferences later this year. I'll be giving a talk at Aloha on Rails in October, called "Ship Your App in a Container". I'll talk about our tools, and show how to plug in existing Java code. Lots of other great speakers will be there, it should be a lot of fun.

Rib Rdb and I will also be giving a talk at RubyConf in November, called "Scaling on App Engine with Ruby and Duby". We'll have some exciting updates to share, and I'll try to demo the things most people have been asking to see, like generating an app with scaffold, building some associations, etc.

I will be giving a talk at JRubyConf called "JRuby on Google App Engine". I'll have App Engine demos that show some cool Java/JRuby tricks. We are very excited to take part in this first ever JRubyConf. Kudos to Engine Yard for making this happen.

Google App Engine 0.0.4 gems released

We've just released version 0.0.4 of the google-appengine and dm-appengine gems. This is a bug fix release: - appcfg.rb run should work again.
  • dev_appserver should now work with paths other than .
  • running dev_appserver.rb with no arguments prints help again.
  • dm-appengine should work with the latest dm-core gems.
We still haven't had time to track down how to fix associations in dm-appengine. Someone had suggested a patch, but it no longer works. If anyone can help track this down we'd be greatly appreciated.
