Rails Performance

Here’s an interview with DHH (creator of Ruby on Rails) where he talks about how Rails can compete with other technologies in terms of performance amd how they’ve made Basecamp fast.

I think Rails can be a great framework for a lot of web applications out there. Just because it’s more established doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a place anymore. There are situation where it isn’t a good tool of course, but one shouldn’t just move on to the next hip technology just because.

Anyway, I found this interview very interesting. Be warned, there is a little bad language in there.
