Topic: Rails Day archives needed for research study
The two previous Rails Day events were great for increasing
But they also represent a good snapshot of current practices
in creating web applications with Ruby on Rails, considering the
large number of participating teams. (more then 50 in both years AFAIK).
And best of all, the code archives are freely available.
Well, at least they were freely available at some time.
Sadly, the websites for both Rails Days (2005 and 2006) have completely
disappeared from the web, and now I am searching for any leads,
as to where I could still get the code.
What do I need the code for?
For my master thesis, I would like to analyse Rails applications,
to make some measurements. Like the average number of model objects,
controllers and controller actions. Or to see how much of the scaffolding actually
I would publish the numbers on the web as soon as I have them in a neutral and raw format
(so anybody can make his own statistics and analysis), alongside with my observations,
as I get them.
So, how can you help me?
If you have a copy of the subversion archive/dump of Rails Day 2005 or 2006,
then please let me know.
If you know the organizers of one of the Rails Days, then please let me know.
Then I can ask them for the subversion archives.
Thanks in advance for any help,
and cheers from Ireland, Benjamin.
