|Few months back i have made a post about Vinsol acquiring new heights by organizing workshop in Universities like DEI. This time Vinsol has started a new trend with arranging monthly Ruby/Rails Meetups in Delhi. The next meetup is on 9th of August with some very interesting sessions registered on solr, metaprogramming in Ruby and Rspec. Hope it to be great success.
Cheers Team 🙂
Few weeks before Vinsol has stepped into new a new phase of ROR encouragement. We had our first ever workshop on Ruby On Rails in an Institute. Vinsol organised an elaborated presentation on 17th March followed by a one day workshop the very next day.
The institute in picture here is DEI ie Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, India. It was supposed to be such an overwhelming moment for me to present ROR in DEI as this institute has special place in my life.Yes i am a product of DEI itself and just luv everything about it like i do about Rails.
After completing my B.Sc+ M.Sc. from DEI, I always wished to stay in contact somehow. And recently when i visited My Dissertation Project Guide Dr.Gursaran and talked about Ruby On Rails I can see my dream turn into reality. He was so much interested when i proposed the idea of a presentation on ROR that he himself made it a point to organize it. Thanks a lot to him for making it a success.
I was not able to go there due to preparations of another major event of my life ‘My Wedding’ 😀 . Even though i am happy as Akhil ,Sur and Hemant made a point to make it a success. They did a great job. With at lest 35 people attending the workshop and showing great interest i believe the future of Rails in DEI is bright.
We are getting tremendous response from the students the people are floored by capacity of Ruby+Rails and yes Sur’s charm also(he s getting lots of response from gals there 😉 ).
Accessing the full advantage of Google’s efforts on providing better life to web surfers, I have created a Ruby On Rails Search Engine using the Custom Search engine tool by Google.Its in initial stage i will explore and try to put it in some new form later sometime.
It searches in some listed blogs and famous sites on ruby and ruby on rails.Currently the list includes …
If you are a ROR developer and have a blog that can be included in the list please feel free to contribute to this search engine. Although the contribution is open to all right now but i have to block it in some time if somebody try to use it in “a not so appropiate way “.As google still havnt given any way to moderate the list of contributions. I just hope Google will listen to our cries soon and respond to it 🙂
Till then Happy Googling for rails 😉
I went to PHP Meetpup last week… there were some very good presentations ..one on Drupal by Saswata, which was more like a comparison between different Open source CMS. Then there was Prasun’s presentation on “Open Source business Models”. The third presentation was very technical one on Ruby on Rails By Manik (MJ).
When MJ was giving his presentation on ROR, someone asked “Why do you want to adopt ROR in place of PHP, when PHP is easy to code? What we need is get our work done and we can do that in PHP very easily. So why use ROR?”
At that particular moment I discovered my true love for Ruby On Rails. From my opinion coding is not only typing some software on keyboard …I think Programming == Logic. For the people who love to code “It’s all about doing it with Logic”. Following the same old tradition sucks your passion for coding and what you are left with is thousands of lines of code written without any interest just to get your job done. The best part of ROR is that it provides coders the ability to think. Instead of writing each and every query in PHP I can spend time on thinking the best way to design the application because I have ActiveRecord methods to protect me from writing those queries. For ROR its like, if you know about web programming you need not worry about basic things… what is needed is, ‘The Logic’ and the zest to learn all the time. So for those who wants a satisfied client… its ok to use whatever that suits them but for those who wants a “More then satisfied client” and an “even more then satisfied programmer “ the best thing I could suggest is Ruby On Rails.
What else I can say…I love ROR and very soon I am going to wear ROR (planning to get ROR T-shirts;)). I wish I could eat ROR also…Hey that’s a gr8 idea I am next going to invent a dish called Ruby On Rails 😀
I am trying to gather information about all of the basic tutorials available on net for Ruby/Rails. This initiative is for those who are trying to learn Rails but coudnt find good resources. If you know of some more resources like these please spend some time and help me in this nobel task of Rails community Expension 🙂

Note: Please also give a look to the articles/tutorials mentioned in the comments in this post. Some of them are really good as being suggestions from other rubyist. Thanks people for the suggestions.
