Rael Dornfest seems to be having a chocolate good time digging into the crunchy Rails. As the Chief Technology Officer at O’Reilly Media, he certainly has a good touch with the pulse of the industry and this is what he’s been seeing:
The chocolate in this equation is Ruby on Rails: a framework for building database-driven web applications. But far from being yet another web development framework, Rails is known for its small footprint, low barrier to entry, flexible-yet-powerful, “more joy and less code” approach to application building.
Indeed, we’ve been seeing interest in Ruby explode over the past few months: no doubt in large part due to the swift adoption (or at least tire-kicking) of Rails.
Ruby on Rails was off to a good start even before bringing Ajax on board; and it’s only gone from strength to strength since.
Thanks a bunch, Rael!
