RailsConf 2015 Recap

Recently, Trevor, Loren, and myself from the AWS SDK team attended RailsConf in Atlanta. We had a great time at the conference and enjoyed connecting with many of you there.

Our Rails on Amazon Web Services Workshop

At RailsConf, we ran a workshop called Deploy and Manage Ruby on Rails Apps on AWS. It was an amazing experience for us, with attendees of all experience levels gettings hands-on experience not only deploying to AWS, but learning about the tools we’ve made to help make integrations easier.

For those of you who could not make it, you can still give this workshop a try!

  • Detailed step-by-step instructions, the same as we provided to attendees, are available here.
  • You can also follow along with the presentation recording on YouTube.
  • Code for the sample app is available on GitHub.
  • If you’d like to try using Amazon Relational Database Service instead of using AWS OpsWorks managed MySQL, you can reference our blog post on that topic as well.

Continuing the Conversation

We hope to see more of you on the conference trail again soon! Apropos of this, it is worth mentioning that AWS re:Invent registration is open at the time of writing. We will be there, and we hope to see you there!
