The results have just been in and the Ruby-on-Rails team from Finalist
IT Group reached an incredible second place!
We’re actually so surprised, that I personally expect the start of RoR
projects here soon. We’ve already announced some RoR courses. And that
while we’re mainly a Java-only shop!
You can read a report from one of the participating developers here:
From the announcement:
Development Tools 2006 (formerly known as RAD Race), is not just a
contest for developing applications as fast as you can. It’s also a
serious showcase, evaluation and analysis of the development tools that
are used by the participating teams. The RAD Race is an annual event
since 1991. The event will be organized by Software Release magazine.
Although it was advertised that the results would be announced at
http://www.developmenttools.nl/site/ (in Dutch), the page still shows
pictures from last year
