Last night I had the pleasure of presenting TorqueBox to the gang at Raleigh.rb in Raleigh, NC. It was a fun bunch of folks, and I appreciate them having me over.
I wanted to follow up on a few of the questions from the end of the talk:
- I'd like to apologize to the gentleman that asked about dependency management on deployment. I cut you off before you even finished the question, and went in to a three minute monologue on dependency injection, when that wasn't even what you were asking about! So, I'm sorry.
- I realized that in my dependency injection monologue, I never actually stated what dependency injection is, or why it can be useful. If you want to know, check out this article.
- Nathaniel asked "where does the money change hands?", and I mentioned that Red Hat would probably productize TorqueBox someday. However, I neglected to mention that TorqueBox the project will always be available freely under the LGPL.
Here are links to a few resources I mentioned in the talk:
- TorqueBox Caching
- Clustering - I mentioned one article, we actually have several on the topic, including the caching article above.
- The full BENchmarks, though I neglected to actually mention these articles in the talk.
If you missed the talk (or even if you didn't), you can still peruse the slides:
