After doing the web programming course at the local university I was quite eager to get a programming job. Unfortunately there is still so much more I have to learn. I dont think any programmer is ever finished with their education.
Anyway, I found something that I like even better than PHP, Ruby and Ruby on rails. I started learning both via an online course on lynda.com. I love rails, it’s amazing. You can set up the functionality for a blog in a few minutes using something called scaffolding. You are forced to do everything Object Oriented so you dont repeat yourself. The code itself “Ruby” is really logical and easy to understand because the syntax is very descriptive and so much can be done with just a little code. There are of course some disadvantages as well, for example deploying for the first time was a nightmare. I didnt know what to do but at least there is always the internet to fall back on. My old friend the internet where all the answers are.
Anyway, that’s all I wanted to say. I am planning on updating my golf project from php to rails soon but I will have to find a domain host which can handle rails because my current one “one.com” does’nt.
