Hosted web services have garnered considerable attention in the past year as an attractive alternative to traditional desktop software. We'll walk through how Ruby on Rails -- a new web application framework -- lets one quickly build and deploy a modern "Web 2.0" application that takes advantage of AJAX, REST, SOAP, and much much more, using code powering ActBlue.com as a working example. No Ruby or previous web development experience necessary.
