I’m really happy to announce that my latest PeepCode screencast, Meet Sinatra has just been released. This screencast was a lot of fun to develop, and like all of the PeepCodes I’ve been a part of creating, it represents a great collaborative effort between myself and Geoffrey. I’d also like to thank my friends who helped out with their great ideas and suggestions.
I love building applications in Ruby, and I think the Rails framework is amazing, but sometimes I just want to write quick web apps with less code. The Sinatra framework is perfect for just these kinds of applications, and this screencast will help you get started, from basic topics like handlers and templates to more advanced techniques, like using DataMapper and Sqlite3, while you build a working ad server.
