I had no idea Ruby on Rails was so cool. The language looks a little odd, but it’s decipherable. It’s the templating and rapid development that really caught my eye in the “15 minute blog” demo. If you don’t know RoR, watch it and try to tell me you don’t get a little excited.
I’d been thinking of using my Resume-o-matic as an excuse to play with Hibernate–and Spring to a lesser extent–but it looks like a capital-P Project to get started. If RoR’s got applicable templates, I could do a little diagramming and fast prototype it from there. Mmm, tasty.
Of course I’m already excited about (or at least interested in) a bunch of other things like Google Sites and Groovy and Python 2.5; they all popped up on my radar last week. It’s technological feast or famine as usual.
