I’m in my final year of a BSc Computer Science course (my final year
project is on Rails) and have been seraching high and low for some
publications on the success of Ruby on Rails within industry.
I’m basically looking for some details on productivity within an
organisation and how it has helped (or not if the case may be) that
paritucular organisation in delivering projects.
As I said, I’ve gone through all the usual channels to find some
details, but have only really come across blog entries that talk about
the lines of code involves in a Rails application to another (as an
exmaple), as well as a few pod casts that mentions similar details.
Obviously this would go someway to suggest Rails would be useful in
reducing project time (less code to write = less time taken, at least in
theory), but it doesn’t really produce any facts.
I know Rails is still rather new, but was wondering if perhaps I was
missing something? Have their been any landmark studies into “Rails in
industry” at all?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
