When I say this week, what I really mean is any framework du jour that happens to make the front page that week.
You want to build a dynamic application with Rails? You need a frontend developer, else it's not going to happen.
You're not Facebook and neither I am. Maybe they can afford to have people learn new frameworks every couple years, but you don't.
Wether you bill at the hour, or you are on a deadline, you can't afford to learn new shit just because it's the new kid on the block.
You think that you might not have the chops to build application with what you know already? You were mislead.
Keep you eyes on the shiny thing
You are a builder, you want to get shit done. I don't want you to waste your time learning frameworks that you'll only use once or twice in your lifetime. I used to do that and it got me nowhere and I don't want you to repeat the same mistake.
It's already complicated enough to build great products, don't waste your time on another framework. Your resources are limited and you have to get your product out of the door.
Rails already has so many tools to get things done. Some you know, some you don't.
I'm writing this blog to help you see how you can use some tools to create complex and beautiful application.
You can't be efficient and learn new tool at the same time
Efficiency comes with practice, it's a fact of life. So instead of going out your way to learn new tool, I'm going to show tips and tricks using stuff you already know to help you build awesome application.
Because I want you to be efficient with Rails so you can build things you love.
So this is where I'm going with this blog, giving a voice to all of us out there that builds complex application, using Rails.
And I hope you'll join me.
