There was a Shuhari presenatation at last year's Scottish Ruby
Conference which might be worth checking out on Confreaks
I would teach Rack and Sinatra before Rails.
I would encourage developers to think about deferred options and the
notion of inheriting technical debt from other people's gems.
Depending on what you value and your project needs teaching some clean
code practices might be preferable to quick and dirty 'this is Rails'.
Caveat emptor: I advise on training courses for BBC Future Media so my
views reflect my bias regarding the problems I see. :)
