Tasty Ruby-on-Rails Kool Aid

Holy crap, does this stuff taste sweet.

After playing around with Rails for awhile now, I can understand why it's gotten so over-hyped. As a guy who's been working on different types of Web apps for a long time now (and of course also developed various one-off frameworks in ASP/ASP.net, PHP, and Ruby for building those apps), it's pretty mind-bending to work with something that takes away this much of the annoying, repetitive grunt work you normally have to do to produce a working app.

And it actually does do it with the aplomb I hoped to see from something built on a language foundation as elegant, flexible, and intuitive as Ruby.
