Ruby on Rails?
No it's not a porn flick (although someone should definitely make one). I'm taking this course at coursera called Web Application Architectures and it's based on Ruby on Rails and so far it looks pretty fucking cool. Any of you programmers out there use this professionally?

P.S. It's not to late to join since nothing's due until this Sunday.

You must not be a programmer. Nerds are the biggest consumer of porn on the planet and whichever horny nerd came up with Ruby on Rails was thinking "That'd make for a great porno flick." Tongue

I am not currently using it professionally but am trying to learn it so I can use it professionally. I really like how straight forward it is and love how it is segmented. It makes troubleshooting much easier when you can see how one section of a program is interacting with others. So for instance, something with "view" and another with "edit" and another with "submit" and if you encounter an issue with a specific function you'll know almost immediately where to go to look instead of tearing stuff apart in your entire program.

Quite brilliantly put together IMO. However, most of what I do tends to deal with scripting. It seems it would be better used for applications or web apps so it's not entirely up my alley. That said, my friends that use it love it (hence how I found out about it).

RE: Ruby on Rails?
My husband was dabbling in it a bit a couple years ago, I know we have some books on it around here somewhere.


I think he was wanting to learn it to use professionally, but either that project never took off, or life just got in the way.

He mostly does java (or atleast thats what I hear him tell people, because when I look at his resume, I don't understand a bit of it. Loads of acronyms that make no sense, Tongue) When I first met him 20 yrs ago, he was using smalltalk.

RE: Ruby on Rails?
I've been looking for a while now for a framework for web development. I have done spring and Java at work although I don't particularly like it. I did start learning Django but forgot it all. I was considering Ruby on Rails but I don't like it when languages are auto-magical. I like everything to be explicit. Auto-magic is fine when you're developing something but can turn into a completely nightmare when that same system needs fixing, normally by someone else. Normally it's someone else developing it and me coming along to fix it. I think that's what put me off Ruby on Rails. It's one reason why I don't like Spring. The other reason is that I don't see that Spring actually buys us anything in the end.

I have some projects in mind which will need a web front end so am still looking for something worth learning. I have even considered learning PHP and dabbled in it. The projects are back-end AI frameworks. I want to create a website so people can use them, find them useful, tells others about it and perhaps get some interest from some big players. I normally concentrate on hard core back-end programming. Web development is a necessary evil for me.

RE: Ruby on Rails?
It has been around for a few years, and really made splash when it arrived. Most other languages and frameworks have responded in some way to what ROR brought with it. The cool and crazy kids are all doing node.js these days I think. Personally I spend most of my time with my java suit and tie on. Web frameworks are still evolving pretty rapidly but understanding Ruby on Rails is a good foundation even if you end up using something that drew inspiration from ROR. In many ways it is the original modern web framework.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
