So, I recently added Agile Web Development with Rails, Second Edition to my wish list. I have to admit though, I almost pulled it right off when I saw the new cover art. I mean, I suppose the rock-star coder marketing has been instrumental in fueling the
hype wild success of Rails, but now, I think the line has been crossed.
Of course, I say this partly in jest but I really do think that the framework has always been able to stand on it’s own merits without having to typecast itself as being the ‘cool’ choice for ‘hip’ programmers.
On a tangental note, I met a guy last night at a friends house who thought Ruby consisted entirely of Rails views. He said, “I don’t really like tag based languages”. Sigh.
Note: If you are about to leave a comment saying. But it’s a grind rail! Don’t. Many people already have and I was aware of this when I first posted this.
