[ANN] New RoR site - and thanks


#1

Just a quick note to let you know I’ve publicly launched the site I’ve
been working on. It’s my first hands-on project in 15 years and I would
not have been able to accomplish it without Rails and the tremendous
community here. Unless you’re concerned about the privacy of personal
health information or have friends / family working in dangerous
industries like heavy construction, you probably won’t think it’s that
cool. Actually, I don’t think of it as cool. Just needed. Anyway, I’d
be very glad to have any feedback from anyone who can make the time to
take a look. And thanks to all of you who’ve helped me get here.

The site’s at www.YourTimeMatters.com

Best regards,
Bill

Congratulations Bill! You’ve been working on that for a while now
I’ve noticed.

Thanks, Ezra. I appreciate that very much. Backgroundrb was a critical
component and I really appreciate the help you gave me.

You’ve been working on that for a while now I’ve noticed.

Almost a year. After being out of hands-on development for 15 years,
there
was a lot more to learn than I realized. The medical XML standard that
underlies the site was one of the more difficult. Rails was one of the
easier :wink: Seriously though, without Rails to stand on and the
tremendous
support here, it wouldn’t have been possible.

Thanks again,
Bill
