How to build a blog engine in 15 minutes with Ruby on Rails: I haven’t watched this all, but it’s a video of the Rails guy showing you how to build a blogging platform on Rails in 15 minutes. It sounds like it was a conference presentation that he recorded.
Based on what I’ve read about Rails this weekend, 15 minutes is slow. Yes, there are other frameworks that could do it in 15 minutes too, but with Rails, you have an architecture that’s as close to textbook-perfect as you can get.
With what Rails spits out, there’s no kuldge, no workarounds, no stuff you promise to go back and clean up. It’s like Grady Booch himself sat down and wrote a bunch of code for you. And Grady Booch knows how to write some code.
