[News] A Look at Programming with Python and Ruby on Rails 2.3

Hash: SHA1

The current state and future of Python

,----[ Quote ]
| So what does python have to offer?  It is a nice mix of procedural 
| programming, object oriented and functional.  That is what I love about it.  
| It allows you to work in a mix of all three.  It also seems that it is made 
| by a bunch of people that understand that while flexibility is important 
| (Perl code) you have to be able to READ and UNDERSTAND something written by 
| another human being.  One way python does this is by forcing you to indent 
| your code.  This may seem stupid to some but readability goes WAY up, when 
| something is consistently indented the same way.  Another way they make it 
| easier to read than other languages is by making it more like natural 
| language, the language is more verbose than your average language but not as 
| bad as something like BASIC.          


Rails 2.3 Makes Finders Fancier

,----[ Quote ]
| As I said, these new find features are relatively small, incremental 
| improvements, but I find these much easier and natural to express what I am 
| trying to find. I can think of several places in my own code that can benefit 
| from the clarity. Lord knows I need the help!   
| In coming weeks I’ll present more about Rails 2.3 and also wander all over 
| the World Wide Web to find tools, techniques, and tinkering to entertain you.  



"Ruby on Rails" comprehensively renovated

,----[ Quote ]
| Following two release candidates, the official version 2.3 of the open source
| Ruby on Rails web framework has now been released. Although David Heinemeier
| Hansson, creator of Rails, had originally said in 2007 that there would now
| only be evolutionary changes in Rails, version 2.2, with its introduction of
| i18n API, multithreading and experimental support for Ruby 1.9, was a
| comprehensive release and now version 2.3 introduces further substantial
| changes.


Rails 2.3 preview eyed for Monday

| application development framework is being targeted for release today, the
| founder of the project, David Heinemeier Hansson, said on Friday.


Rails and Merb Merge

,----[ Quote ]
| Today is a fairly momentous day in the history of Ruby web frameworks. You
| will probably find the news I’m about to share with you fairly shocking, but
| I will attempt to explain the situation.
| Before talking tech, and even going into the details of the announcement, I
| want to assure everyone that the incredible members of the thriving Merb
| community are top priority, and that this could not have been possible
| without every one of them.
| Merb is an open, ever-changing project, and some its best ideas have come
| from not-core regular-Joe community members. It’s gotten where it has because
| of the community, and the community will get us even further in the future.
| Your ideas, feedback and even complaints will be 100% welcome in the future,
| just as they have been in the past. I believe in the tremendous value an open
| community and just generally open attitude bring to the table, and am
| counting on those things to continue ushering in the future of Ruby.

| The Grails 1.0 open source Web application development framework was
| announced this week by G2One, which specializes in Groovy and Grails
| technology, and the Grails development team.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
