Presentation: "Case study: Oracle Mix"

Time: Monday 11:30 - 12:20

Location: Musikhuset Nr. 222


In November 2007, Oracle Mix went live after 6 weeks of hard development. The application was built using JRuby on Rails, and Oracle did this together with several consultants from ThoughtWorks.

Ola will talk about some of the lessons learned from building a social networking application using JRuby on Rails as the main technology stack. What were the challenges and benefits of the solution? What are the future plans of the application?
