Oh boy. If I even mention a new development platform around the office, people start to break out in hives. Let’s just say the phrase “Now what?!” has been bandied about on more than one occasion.

But this time it’s different… honest!

If ever a bandwagon felt like a good one to jump on, Ruby on Rails is it. This looks to be, based on a weekend or so of fiddling, a fantastic framework. Just reading the API gave me any number of No Freakin’ Way! moments. In all fairness, I have to admit that I have very little experience with some of the also fabulous (I’m sure) Java frameworks, but they’re… well… Java. And .NET? That’s not even Java, it’s… you know who.

Can’t wait to see how this pans out.
