Rails turns 3
Is rails only 3? Why does it feel like it's been around forever?
It was shortly after my posting in July 2005 that I really ramped up on my rails skills. I have a few client apps floating around the web, along with a few other rails projects running out in the wild, but I really had thought that I would have had done more with Ruby/Rails than I have in the last +2 years.
The sad fact is that the MORE my employment responsibilities have leaned towards that of a full-time programmer (which I currently am) the LESS time I've had to dabble with emerging technologies or just experiment with ones I am familiar with.
It's not that my interest in programming decreases the more I program for a living, the last few years have just been EXTREMELY busy with school, work and freelance.
If I can work next semester's schedule correctly, then yesterday will mark my last day in a college class room. This semester doesn't end until Aug 7th, but our final that day can be taken anywhere (online).
So, with my hardest class out the way, and only 2 courses to go I expect to have much more time to dedicate to doing the tinkering I miss so much as well as post here more frequently.
