Don't be so arrogant

Posted by admin

Some times you just need an outside opinion to achieve true clarity of vision. Thankfully, there’s always such an angel available when you need it the most:

Rails shows some promise but much, much more is needed. Sorry to say this but you need stored procedure support (I know that’s a sensitive subject), less coupling with the data schema, data-aware tags in XML format and more people to knock out serious bugs.

Don’t be so arrogant.

Thanks, Pearson. I don’t know how I could have somehow missed these essential features for so long. I mean, how can we expect to be taken serious before we have data-aware tags in XML format? And what is up with all that coupling with the data schema?!

Actually, I don’t think we can get that 1.0 out the door now. With this renewed vision for the true frontiers for Rails, I think we need at least a few months in the shop yet. Of course, we’ll use that time to get all those people to knock out our serious bugs.

This is indeed all for the best.
