Rails rally cry heard in .NET framework arena

Jack Vaughan Jack Vaughan Profile: Jack Vaughan

Rails as a lightweight framework is getting a look-see from many in the developer community. The Ruby-based architecture walks developers though the common practice of Web application building. “It gives you an object-relational map and does the mapping for you,” said the co-author of the new book, “Rails for .NET Developers.” These authors see value for Rails, even for .NET development teams. Lighter is better, they suggest. Of course Microsoft is tracing these developments too, and has a Ruby software effort, known as IronRuby, underway. The trends are discussed in Rich Seeley’s piece, “.NET Web developers ride Ruby and Rails.”
