Rolling On Rails

I’ve been a web developer for a few years now, some of the time professionally, sometimes as slave labour and others just for fun. I always like to try my hand at new technologies. I’ve tried all kinds down the years: ASP, ASP.NET, JSP, PHP, Perl CGI scripting… basically anything with a P in the name I’m there 😀

I’ve been playing with Python a lot lately and I love it (note the P in the name again), I’ve been doing some work with a Python web framework called Django and it’s great I have no complaints, it’s quick easy to learn and I intend to use it for more projects. However, I’ve noticed that Ruby On Rails seems to be getting all the press at the moment and everywhere I go I’m confronted with people raving about it, so I thought it was time I gave it a go. Even though there’s no P in the name which is a worry.

I’ve installed everything I need and I even wrote a little bash script to do the setup for me on my Ubuntu boxes, I’ll release the script after some testing if people want to use it. I’ve got myself a shiny new Rails book and I’m ready to go.

I thought I’d document my efforts and give some tips and warnings along the way as I learn about it. So you’re all invited along for the ride, check your height against the chart first though lol 😉
