Just a short rant, sorry for the interruption.
What is it with people catagorizing Ruby as a web programming language?
THERE'S MORE TO RUBY THAN RAILS!
(Sorry for the shouting, I'll try to restrain myself from here on out.) Addison-Wesely, whose Ruby books and shortcuts I'm really looking forward to after a very positive experience with Rubyisms in Rails, has things confused. Rubyisms in Rails under a "Design and Creative Media/Flash" and the "Internet and Web/General" groupings. But they're not alone . . ..
IBM has just announced their new Web Development center, which "features technical resources for . . . Ruby, as well as Web development frameworks such as . . . Rails". Great, the Rails part I understand being in a 'Web Framework Development Center'. Why Ruby though?
Ruby does more than just build websites ‐ even James Gosling has figured that out by now!
