Snakes and Rubies downloads

On December 3, 2005, Ruby and Python developers from Chicago and vicinity gathered at DePaul University to hear two of the leaders in rapid Web-application development debate the merits of each other’s frameworks.

Adrian Holovaty, one of the creators of the Django framework for Python, and David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of Ruby on Rails framework, answered questions about their work and the future of Web-application development. You can read more about the event at the Snakes and Rubies website.

That event was recorded, and now audio and video are available for download.
