David Heinemeier Hansson's RailsConf Keynote Address Now Online

In late June, at the Ruby on Rails "RailsConf" conference, Rails creator David Heinemeier Hansson gave a defining keynote address where he proposed some mind-opening additions and changes to the Ruby on Rails framework. David's keynote gave a renewed focus on simplicity and "DRY" (Don't Repeat Yourself) techniques to the Rails community by proposing that most resources manipulated by Rails applications could be referred to by a single URL, with only the HTTP verb (GET, PUT, POST, DELETE, etc.) defining the action.

David made his slides and notes available the day after his keynote, but now full videos of his keynote have been made available to watch online.
