I did something new yesterday. I did some Rails. Ruby on Rails to be exact. It’s pretty darn neat! If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a web framework that lets you easily create and maintain database-driven websites. You can setup a simple site in a matter of minutes!
I also played with Ruby itself today. It’s the scripting language that Rails runs on. I was able to do something with it that I have never been able to do with any other programming language…at least not this easily. I wrote a script that can SSH into a server and issue a list of commands. It will make my life MUCHO easier!
Daniel has been trying to get me to try Rails for a long time now, but I’ve been resistent. It wasn’t until Apple wrote an article on it that I really took notice. Hooray Apple! Now if they would only drop the prices of their Intel products…..
