I just got my Agile Web Development with Rails book! Now I can learn rails and start writing killer software 10 times faster than I could with PHP!
Seriously, now I can actually see how easy it is to develop “real” software with rails, rather than the ten minute basically worthless blog software that doesn’t even have authentication. I think building Flowpad v2 with it (the next version of the tournament registration software) will be the ultimate test of its abilities.
Hopefully Rails will be up to the task.
