let say that ruby has some developed already parts very easy to use.In 2 minutes you can do a blog app or some of the popular styles of web sites. Drupal, joomla and others have a learning curve bigger than ruby and its frameworks. Unfortunately major hosting companies offer only php and perl, rarely you find python and ruby.

I know that Python has frameworks like this. And there are the popular packages like Plone, Jumla, Drupal, and others I can't think of right now.

Its official web site is http://RubyOnRails.org Besides documentation there, I found an excellent tutorial at http://RailsTutorial.org I have included a text version of that tutorial, as well as many others on the Ruby language and Rails package, in the archive http://EmpowermentZone.com/ruby_doc.zip After extensive research on web content management systems and application frameworks, I have decided that Rails is currently the best fit for some sites I want to be able to do. Its power comes with complexity, however, and, unfortunately, there are less resources available for helping Windows developers use this framework compared to Mac or Linux developers (I would develop on Windows and then deploy on a Linux web host). So, I thought it could benefit my self-learning if other blind developers were also pursuing that path together. We could share tips along the way, hopefully helping one another out of jams, and reinforcing motivation to continue. If anyone else on these lists is interested in learning Rails together, or if you happen to know Rails already and can lend a hand, please speak up.
