Sorry for the delay, but here is the first video that was premiered at Railsconf Europe. The series just didn't feel complete without touching briefly on ColdFusion.

In case you haven't noticed us started a weekly Podcast yesterday which covers all things Ruby / Rails. If you're interested in keeping on the edge of technology, it's definitely worth subscribing.

The very last Ruby on Rails vs ____ video will be released Monday, and it's a second .NET commercial that you won't want to miss.

this was the worst one, little out dated too, myspace doesn’t even run on CF anymore

Easily the best in the series! Instant classic!

I’m not even going to point out the problems with it.

Russ JohnsonOctober 03, 2017 @ 05:26 PM

This ones funny! Good job G! I love the myspace clip at the end!

Joe ZackOctober 03, 2017 @ 05:58 PM

That “command line” poke at the end had me roflcopteringmaoing.

Bad choice to use MySpace as an example - everybody knows that bad coding was the problem for MySpace.

If MySpace used Ruby on Rail it could had been full of problems aswell, if the code was bad.

Just brilliant :) But how can this possibly be the end, you haven’t picked on Classic ASP. Yup still around, and sure it’s an easy target, but you can’t leave it out. Especially since Gucci is still recruiting for it! Sure;y there are more platforms to roast!

You know, if this rails stuff doesn’t pan out, I think you should consider an acting career :)

You forgot about Coldfusion’s third dad, Allaire )

They built CF and then got bought my Macromedia.

that guyOctober 12, 2017 @ 04:13 PM

hehe, that was a suprising one, since most of you OO guys don’t think CF as a “real” language. I actually enjoy CF and Rails, they’re both my cup of tea. I’ve really been enjoying a CF framework named Model Glue. But anywho, back to the post, yea that commercial was kinda weak, as you guys were dogging on myspace more than CF as a langauge… The truest, funniest statement of the whole thing was the command line gig… heh

good one!

@an: True, Myspace now runs on BlueDragon, but it still is CFML (implementation vs. “language”).

I liked CF in it’s time, and I would be surprised if I worked with Ruby on Rails for as many years as I did with CF. It will be interesting to see where Rails and Django and others are in 5 years.

Haha, this is my favourite yet :-) Keep them coming!
