While videos and talk are all nice and good, it’s the applications built that has the power to propel frameworks into stardom. Basecamp has served as a flag bearer for a long time, but with the launch of 43 Things, it’s finally getting some assistance from another high profile public site. Alexander Payne takes note:
43 Things was built on Rails. Rails delights me in portions of my being that I never knew existed, much less were capable of being delighted by a web application framework. My infatuation with Ruby, dormant two long years, has been mightily rekindled by Rails. I really quite genuinely want to drink a beer or 12 with David Heinemeier Hansson.
Sure thing, Alexander. I’ll be in Seattle from the 26th until the 30th. Maybe we can figure out a night out for Rails developers and interested.
