Topic: Scalability of ruby on rails application

Hi,

    I heared the scalability issues in ruby on rails application. When
searching over it almost all denied the scalability issues in rails
application but i was not able to understand the reason given. Can
anyone tell me in simple way.

Thanks,

Write good code and you'll be fine. Chances are you won't write an application that won't scale, they have to get crazy popular first.

were you by any chance reading about twitter and how they are/were/will/might be moving away from rails due to 'scalability problems'?

Simple minds are manipulated by such things.

Has anyone noticed that Twitter installed Scala (Java) to help with critical loads, has over $100m in the bank and is still down all the time?  lol

I guess that means either no framework is magical and can scale to any size without effort or Java has the same scaling problems as Rails.  LMAO
