Thoughts on Stuff and Junk

Ruby on Rails and MS .Net

Through my reading, playing, and learning about Ruby on Rails I’m finding that it’s not the language itself that impresses me—it’s the concept.

Some Java people are seeing it too.

Where I work we’re building an ASP.NET application toolset that seems to get closer and closer to an RoR concept. A tad less dynamic, but in spirit none-the-less: Convention over Configuration.

This stuff is possible with bigger more complex development environments—we just have to learn how to hold back and just make it happen.

I say convention and generators over complete flexibility and sore fingers :)
