An introduction to Sinatra

Tonight I gave an introductory talk about Sinatra at the second meetup of BelfastRuby.

The Converser platform I’ve been building this last while uses a lot of Sinatra so when I was asked to give a talk about using Ruby to develop web apps without Rails it wasn’t hard to think of a subject.

This was my first technical talk and apart from a touch of nerves and forgetting some of the jokes I had in mind I think things went well. Maybe I’ll end up giving another one before too long :)

The slides are available at and make use of showoff which itself uses Sinatra. Meta.

The source, including the code samples, is on GitHub.

Update: some photos from the evening are now available on Flickr.
