Presenting at RailsConf 2014

Update: here are the links to the talk video and slides

My talk "Ultra Light and Maintainable Rails Wizards" has been added to the RailsConf 2014 program


Wizards have been common in web applications since the dawn of the Internet, with the most popular example being the Shopping Cart, yet many struggle with writing wizard code effectively, resulting in a huge untraceable rat's nest of copy/paste code. In fact, many implementations violate REST and include Fat Controllers as well as overly complicated wizard-step management, data, session, and validation code. This talk covers a better way that yields Ultra Light and Maintainable Rails Wizards!

If you have any special requests to include in the talk, please let me know in the comments.

Looking forward to connecting with Rails developers at RailsConf 2014.
