On September 25th, David Keener, a Solutions Architect for MetroStar System’s New Media Group, spoke at SunnyConf in Phoenix, Arizona. SunnyConf is Arizona’s first Ruby conference.
According to David Keener, “I’m pleased to be one of the inaugural speakers for what is shaping up to be a great annual technical conference for Arizona. It may be the first year of the conference, but they’ve assembled a great group of speakers. I’m excited to have been invited to be one of them.”
Taking advantage of his extensive social media experience at MetroStar, Dave presented “Leveraging Rails to Build Facebook Applications.” His talk builds on his experience with real-life clients, both commercial and government, who are increasingly clamoring for social features to be “baked into” business applications in order to communicate more effectively with customers.
