State Of Rails 05

  1. 1. The State of Ruby on Rails David Heinemeier Hansson
  2. 2. What an amazing year
  3. 3. My disenchantment with my job grows daily. The more I use Rails, the more I dislike the absolute mountain of crap that is J2EE. Certainly I want to do the best I can for Webify but there is no joy in working with J2EE anymore. So I face quite the quandary: J2EE pays very well. I have been working with Java for 8 years now, have lots of experience and I am essentially at the top of the pecking order of engineers at my current job. To leave the J2EE world would seem to be career suicide. Mike Perham, Java Developer
  4. 4. It didn’t start out like that
  5. 5. First they ignore you,
  6. 6. then they laugh at you,
  7. 7. then they fight you,
  8. 8. About tadalist, that application is so stupid that I'm wondering how the hell it could have taken him 600 lines to write it. Also, the hugely hyped 'killer application' of RoR, Basecamp, is a total fraud imho. The screenshots look nice, and are nicely presented. So I did make an account and started using it. And honestly, everything they say is true, it sets itself apart in simplicity. Not difficult to write that in a few weeks. Geert Bevin, Developer of .
