  • Two things:

    Blank slides are where I had code being displayed as a web site... sorry it doesn't come through. (Honestly, I didn't have them prepared for the presentation anyway.)

    Also, the last slide is described like so: both Merb and Rails are capable frameworks, with their own iduiosynchrasies and benefits. Ultimately, Merb is faster and more modular but requires more effort, and Rails is more out-of-the-box (though Merb is addressing this actively with Stacks).

    Either way, Merb and Rails are good choices in the grand scheme of things.
