Ruby + Salesforce = Happy Developers

August 30, 2011 Danny Burkes

Pivotal is proud to announce the release of the databasedotcom gem. Developed in partnership with Heroku and Salesforce, this gem wraps the REST API in familiar Ruby idioms, making it a snap to create web applications that integrate with your existing Salesforce instance, or even straight Ruby apps that do offline analysis of your Salesforce data.

I will be giving a session at Dreamforce on Tuesday, August 30, introducing the gem and demonstrating how easy it is to integrate into a Rails application. The session is entitled Building and Deploying Great Applications with Salesforce, Ruby, and Heroku, and takes place in Moscone West Room 2008 from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Source code from the session will be available soon, as will the session slides.

Hope to see you there!
