Introduction1:16 with Jay McGavren
You've probably heard of Ruby on Rails, which is Ruby's most popular framework for writing web apps. But there's a much simpler alternative, called Sinatra.

It's a great way to understand what web apps are all about, before moving on to the added complexity of Rails.
