As we spoke a little about programming and programming languages on the show yesterday, I thought finding this article timely. I had even mentioned the Ruby scripting language.
Ruby on Rails (RoR) seems a successful attempt to provide a framework; a system, if you will, for generation and maintenance of web services and web site code. The philosophy of rigorous simplicity is interesting in it's own right. The article is an interesting read and can even give those who don't program a fairly decent idea of RoR's strengths and weaknesses.
