QUT Ruby.NET Project is now Open Source

This is an interesting development and one which should see this project move along more quickly.

I have just started looking at Ruby on Rails (RoR) as a way of developing web sites more quickly. RoR is a language that John Lam describes as having a lot of Buzz. Ruby itself has been around a while but seems to have taken off with the advent of Rails which is what Martin Fowler describes as an internal domain specific language (DSL). To noobs like me this is an extension to Ruby language for the purposes of building web applications.

This is not the only project where Ruby is being ported to .NET. The aforementioned John Lam is working on IronRuby as part of the Silverlight DLR.

Pip, pip.

Michael.
