As someone who established his own business on Turkey, I am closely
interested in getting this type of feedback from rails community.
Each day we are becoming a much more Rails dependent business because
first we have already started to serve many rails web sites as a service
to our customers and second we are still starting new business on rails.
Among those applications are SMS APIs, IVR applications, Scheduling
script lets and so on.
Unfortunately I still do not observe any efficiency that rails brings to
our business. When I think what it would look like or how long it would
take if we had did all in asp.net
, I am generally confused because you
can never know without really doing it.
I certainly do not agree on the claim that rails is ideal for fast web
application development. We have certainly not gained any time yet.
But oppositely to what community claims, we think that rails will bring
efficiency when the projects gets bigger because rails push us to a good
but as a service provider who has to deal lots of third party
applications, we are experiencing some difficulties when we have to
implement something that is not a rails way. for instance the ISP
provider make a GET request to post the messages to our servers. we can
handle this but we get away of the rails way. it was just a small
The real reason we are still on rails is because we still believe that
it WILL be a very fast application development framework in the near
future. So we are investing on rails
I would like to hear what you are benefiting from rails?
