Re: Should I learn RoR ?

there's the free http://www.buildingwebapps.com/learningrails website that has video presentations and uses Rails 2.0.2 .  I'm enjoying it as it gets you up to speed faster than just reading.  If you're keen on trying it, these tutorials will let you know if Rails has the right potential for your needs.

Rails can't do everything, but in understanding Rails it helps considerations in framework design in nice digestable chunks.

Cheers

Rails can be painfully slow. merb is an intelligent choice over rails today.

Are you serious or just trolling ? Do you have any benchmarks ?

Why have benchmarks when you can just make unsubstantiated claims like this. Yes merb is leaner than Rails, but good Rails code can be very quick. Bad Rails code, as with any bad code, can be painful.

But then again why let facts or context get in the way of general statements.

Re: Should I learn RoR ?

Well, I found some benchmarks.. I can't -quite- read them, but they are what they are, and they do indicate that Merb is faster.

I did indicate that I believed that Merb is leaner (read mostly quicker) but my point was if you are going to post that, post something to back it up, like you did, but even the link you posted wasn't that good.
