Brevard Ruby Users Group

I started a website for what I hope will be a local users group for Ruby, the programming language, and of course, its more popular Rails framework that is changing the face of web development.

To slap it up quickly, I used Wordpress, which as you may know, is a PHP-based blogging engine. Perhaps a bit of irony in doing that, since I’m somewhat confessing that maybe (ahem!) sometimes PHP still beats Rails.

The reality is, of course, that PHP is great for a lot of things and is my first love when it comes to web application development. Plus, I’m practically a Wordpress junkie. But I’m knee-deep in learning Rails and I really would like to use it for a few projects that I’ve been sitting on waiting for… oh, I don’t know… time, funds, the right partner. Did I mention time?
