Rails TakeFive: Five Questions with Satish Talim
Published on March 28, 2008 by deanIn this week’sRails TakeFive, we are happy to welcome from Pune,India,Satish Talimof rubylearning.com.
FiveRuns:
Welcome, Satish, and thanks for joining us to share yourthoughts on Ruby on Rails. What was your first “ah-ha” moment withRuby and/or Rails and when did you know that the framework was agood fit for you?
Satish Talim:
I have been using Java since 1995 for all my softwaredevelopment work and my interest in Ruby was aroused after I read anarticle,Ruby the Rivalin November 2005. I started learning Rubymyself and created my own siteRubyLearning.comto help others like me to quickly get a handle onRuby. I saw a great opportunity for local software companies in using Ruby / Rails and to help promotethe language, I created thePuneRuby user groupwhich now has over 500 members. With time, I havehad the pleasure of interacting with some great Ruby / Rails minds likeDavid Heinemeier Hansson,Bruce Tateand many more.
FiveRuns:
Where do you go for Rails-related news and insight – any particular website, blogs, forums,etc. that are of particular value?
Satish Talim:
I use / read:For most of my Ruby / Rails-related news, Peter Cooper’s popular Ruby news blog –RubyInside.DZoneandInfoQ for additional news. TheRuby-Talkforum, since my focus is more on the Ruby language.WorkingWithRailsto get to know other Ruby / Rails community members.Blogs of Obie Fernandez,Ola Bini,Pat Eyleramongst others.
FiveRuns:
Let’s talk aboutRubinius– what do you see as the major advantage here, even though we’reobviously in the early stages?
Satish Talim:
Rubinius is a new implementation of Ruby done in a Smalltalk style with a small core VMwritten in C and almost everything else written in Ruby. At this point it’s still slow and incomplete, butit’s maturing fast.Engine Yardis investing heavily in Rubinius and this would encourage thedevelopment of tools and libraries that will benefit the rest of the community. Rubinius is going to openup core Ruby hacking to the masses, and I agree withPat Eylerhere that, it would result in more peoplehacking on the system and trying out new ideas. As some of these ideas prove themselves, I see thembeing adopted into Ruby.
FiveRuns:
There was agreat articlerecently on the Rails community in Austin and the Austin on Railsuser group specifically. Are you part of a local user group? Tell us about your local community, whatyou love about it, how it is grown, and what challenges the group sees ahead of itself, in both the nearand long term.
Satish Talim:
I started thePuneRubyuser group in 2005 to promote the understanding, usage andadoption of Ruby / Rails locally. With time, the user group now has over 500 members. Most of thediscussions between the members is via the Yahoo user group site, though we do try and meet at leastonce a month. Going ahead, the group needs to involve themselves in some of the many projects onRubyForge– projects that need contributions (mostly development work) from more people. With somany members with PuneRuby, we could adopt some of the RubyForge projects.
