Truth: my blog and I have been apart for a while. Another truth: I've been reading more about Ruby. In fact, the more I read, the more I want to. Also, I've been growing tired of certain things:
- PHP is not it anymore.
- Wordpress or Drupal are top notch. I don't need top notch; I want to publish content easier and faster.
- I want to learn Ruby the hard way. I want to learn how to test, I want to learn how to build a gem, how to use Rack, all of it. Only then I'll be more confident enjoying the full power of Ruby.
- I don't want to depend on a database to publish my content. I never saw that much sense in storing articles inside a relational database column. I love Git and it seems it is capable of storing the content I want.
- I'm sick of 10+ spam comments a day.
My next dare: a git + ruby based blog. So, I'll be posting several articles on how I'm doing. If possible, I'll post videos too. I'll make sure to use Vimeo since it accepts OGG (it seems lighter).
Thanks to the people at the Ruby meetup in March 19th
who have motivated me (even without knowing).
