Enjoyed it, thanks! Good to catch up in the bar after too.

The WAHHv2 book is *the* bible as far as web app security testing is concerned. I highly recommend it (along with the Tangled Web book also mentioned on the list). The online labs which were talked about last night are at http://mdsec.net/ and again, they are very good but not very specific to Rails/Ruby.

I mentioned to a few of you but I'm working on a project which might be of interest when it comes to ruby/rails/sinatra security and testing and I hope to deliver a talk on it at LRUG in the near future.
