  • What are the Benefits of Ruby on Rails? After Two Decades of Programming, I Use Rails (Publication)
    Sometimes I hear people complaining about their clients, saying that they insist on using Rails, that they've had too much Kool Aid. If they are recruiters, they almost feel sick in the stomach from perspective of having to find yet another ROR primadona. From the programmers point of view it sometimes looks like clients don't have a clue. However, I believe most clients know their options just fine and they still decide to go with Rails.
