This has been my little experiment for the last few weeks. I jumped
into rails after a few tutorials and have been using “Agile Web
with Rails” as a reference. I picked up the Ruby syntax from examples
was not hard to do as I know various other languages. I’ve started 3
database driven web apps and all was going really well. Rails is fun and
productive. I was having fun. … But at the back of my mind I knew at
point I’d get stuck. It finally came last night when I tried to do a fun
little scientic web application that used a bayesian classifier.
So now I’m wondering how far somebody can go with Rails if they have no
prior programming experience?
