  • Rails and Legacy Databases

    by Brian P. Hogan

    This session will show how we built a Rails application around a database that didn’t even come close to following the conventions that Rails wants you to use. We’ll show how we used views and some Ruby techniques to make the database appear to conform, and we’ll show that it’s really not as hard as people make it sound.

    We’ll also talk about other strategies we’ve used to migrate data from legacy schemas to new Rails schemas. Attendants should feel free to submit some examples to us beforehand.

    At 1:50pm to 2:40pm, Wednesday 6th May
