Andrew will also be covering:

  • What are the new features in Rails 5.0?
  • What are the minimum requirements to run Rails 5.0?
  • What is the policy for bug fix and security updates once the new Rails 5.0 is released?
  • What legacy features will be removed and no longer supported?

There will also be a Q&A session afterwards to get any questions out there that you may have about the new upgrade.
