Today is the second day of my dive using the RoR framework. I’ve been trying to read up on some tutorials and demonstrations using Ruby on Rails. I must say that it is quite interesting so far and even though there is going to be a definite learning curve coming from over 5 years of development using PHP, I don’t think it is an impossible one to overcome. What won me over was the 15 minute demonstration on how to deploy a pretty minimalistic blog in under 15 minutes. (check it out here: http://rubyonrails.org/screencasts)
Again, I must admit, after learning web development the long way, a little convention over configuration can only make things better.
