Taking the RoR plunge

I’ve been programming with .Net for awhile now. Last fall i attended the
Lone Star Ruby Conference, and ever since then i have been thinking of
devoting all of my efforts to learning Ruby and Ruby on Rails. The big
question is how the future of Ruby is looking? What is needed to succeed
in
this language?

thanks,
Jason

Excellent website (Rubyology), thanks for the link. It’s time to make
the
switch. Tomorrow night i’m going to the local ruby on rails user groups.
thanks,
Jason

Jason,

I was an ASP and ASP.NET developer for several years too. I switched
to Ruby nearly 2 years ago and have been amazingly more happy and
productive since. The language and tools are much more expressive and
powerful. AJAX and Javascript through RJS is stupid simple. Check
out the http://www.Rubyology.com podcast to help with your transition!

Cheers,
Chris Matthieu
