About Ruby and Rails
What is Ruby?
Ruby is an object-oriented software language, developed by Yukihiro Matsumoto, aka "Matz". It balances beautiful, easy-to-read syntax with powerful features borrowed from Lisp, Smalltalk, and Perl.
What is Rails?
Rails is an Open Source web-application framework, designed with agile software development in mind. It favors convention over configuration, which allows developers to rapidly get a prototype up and running. This frees up more time to focus on quality and features.
Rails gives us the power to design complex, secure, industrial-strength web apps, along with the flexibility to easily make future modifications.
Other tools we use:
- Cruise Control Continuous Integration system
- Prototype & script.aculo.us (AJAX)
- MySQL & PostgreSQL
- Linux & Mac OS X
Open Source Projects
We are also contributing back to the Rails community with a few of Internaut's open-source plugins, hosted at github.
