 At the Forge - Getting Started with Ruby

Any large software project is going to be a large software project regardless of the tools you use. I have been reading about Ruby on Rails recently and there are some very nice things about it. In fact it looks fantastic. But in the end no tool is going to write your app for you, unless it is a very simple app.

On the other hand those of us that have seen magic tools again and again can become somewhat blind when a powerful new tool comes along. I will leave it to the reader to make up their own mind.

"You can imagine my surprise, then, when I began to see another "best new method" coming over the horizon-but this one was touted by people I respect, who normally don't give in to hype so quickly. I'm speaking, of course, about "Ruby on Rails", an object-oriented system for creating and deploying Web applications. For several months now, I have been reading about how wonderful Rails is and how it makes Web development utterly simple."
