    I'm hooked with the Web 2.0 looks implemented from RoR. It's kinda cool and looks tempting.

    I'm going to the bookstore to grab a book of Ruby to start learning.
    Anyone in the Ruby yet?

    i use RoR as well. i started in the summer and it took me some time to figure things out. i didnt even know html!

    i am about to launch my first site and have 2 more coming out as well. the best part about RoR is that all the cool functionality you want to do, most likely its available as a plugin. that means you can easily drop it in your rails application and all the hard work is done!

    This is my topic guys, I love RoR, it's just a great alternative to use instead of PHP.

    I wouldn't say it's an alternative, maybe if you're looking to learn a new language and don't know any then ruby and or rails might be for you, however I don't see ruby or rails doing anything that php ( with a mixture of ajax and js, obviously ) can't do, so theres no reason for me to stop using php as my main development tool and use ruby and or rails, it's certainly powerful and takes some of the more cumbersome tasks out of proramming, but there are those of us that enjoy every line of code we write and simply writing less lines in a different IDE isn't anywhere near enough to convince me it's a real competitor with php.

    Ruby comes with everything right out of the box, unlike PHP you have to go through module install hassles which save you absolutely no time at all, unlike RoR.

    Wrong, ruby comes sames as php, as c source, an experienced php user / developer can build php with every single library ( almost ) they will need statically linked into the executable, or apache module, or dll's in windows case.

    I'm not saying theres anything wrong with rails, or ruby, or the way they work together, of course I'm not, any language is a fantastic language ( I have used, I like ), I just don't think its very learner friendly, and not just because of the structure of the language, or the way it is distributed, but for the forseeable future php will have the largest user base, making it incredibly easy to learn, and keep learning.

    Maybe rails will be that one day, but at the moment, it just isn't.

    I learned Ruby much faster than I did a language which is supposed to be easier. Maybe because Ruby has something PHP does not. proper organization for coding.

    I'm also starting to learn ROR to create a websystem, i chose ROR becuase of its speed, which is what i need.

    Is this the fastest out of all the others such as PHP, HTML etc and is there a ROR Forum

    Yes, it's fast. Especially if you use lightpd or mongrel.

    I'm desparate for a project I can justify using RoR ... I also love the clean web 2.0 look.

    Anyone got any example RoR sites they've developed?
