Your Shameless Host
Hi! Welcome to the personal blog of Jason Stirk (Griffin) - a slightly unhinged web application developer living in Lismore, NSW (yes, that's in Australia).
I run a software consulting company called Aurora Software.
Well, I (and my blog) are back online after
our year long heroin fuelled bendermoving house (apologies to Lord Feathering-Walthamstone). It's been an interesting (and hectic) week, but things are starting to smooth themselves out.
All this uproar, however, has given me a small chance to relax. Where I am living is close to the beach, and includes a pool - so relaxing is an extremely attractive past-time!
Although I haven't been very eager to get back into my usual routine of trawling the web for interesting tidbits, I did have a chance to sit down
yesterdaythe day before yesterday and read Rolling with Rails and become acquainted with Ruby on Rails. The article demonstrates the basics of getting a rails site running quite well, although the Rails' own tutorial on building a TODO application does go into more detail.
Regardless, I'm really impressed and excited by the simplicity and power of Rails.
Incidentally, Amy Hoy has written an interesting (and humorous) /review|commentary|appendix/ to the article titled Really Getting Started in Rails. An interesting read for anyone not fully savvy with Rails.
Anyhu, enough of the blatant Rails zealotism! For now anyway...
