Finally getting the hang of Ruby on Rails

After several hours messing with code and 1038482308483028 tutorials online, I finally got it! Behold!

Prayer Places Locater 1.0 (Alpha), Stable

My first proper RoR app. It's half done. I'll let you know when it's ready to launch. And I'll even write a tutorial here in due time for those developers that want to get a start on RoR. It's quite a fascinating language and framework. It has a lot of advantages over .Net and the Castle MVC framework. I find RoR far more simpler to utilise, although you have to get around the syntactical difference from your traditional OO languages like Java, C++ and C#.Net.

Ruby is just far more concise.

For example, the following in Ruby:

5.times { puts "i love you" }

performs the following in Java:

for (int i=0; i<5; i++) {
System.out.println("i love you");

Ruby is just so..... how they say, "short and sweet".

But being an interpreted language has its lacks too. I know there are frameworks available like JRuby and Ruby/tk to write desktop Ruby apps, but how secure is it actually? I wonder.
