Polyglotting it

This is more of a ramble than a post on learning to do something...

Holy cow this railscast guy moves fast.  However I do find his tutorials quite interesting.  I moved through about 7-8 of these last night ( and found some good gems in there (pun intended).

I spent a lot of time last year learning Rails 2.x, and Ruby 1.9.x.  Not that I'm becoming a professional rails dev (yet), I'm getting into it, especially because I want to be able to create my own servers and connect to my data source while avoiding Java and php (Scala not included cause I still like it).

I've spent a good amount of time with Rails, and while it is still maturing, using TextMate is awesome for debugging, git is hella better than SVN, and I become less dependent upon other systems/companies if I can roll my own.

Expect to hear more from my blog on other things I discover about the languages (Scala, Python, Ruby) I've been going through over the last 2 years, and their associated frameworks (Play, Django, Rails), as well as my foray into noSQL databases (Mongo).  Lots to learn, and lots to understand, but when things work, then I'm happier and more excited to build.
