I just attended my first RailsConf, and I feel a little sad.
Oh, the irony. I attend my first conference devoted to the development tool I’ve been devoted to for the last six years, and my overwhelming feeling is that it’s time to move on…to a new development paradigm and a new toolset.
What I heard from DHH, Aaron Patterson, and Yehuda Katz in their conference addresses was this:
Oh, Rails. The writing is already on the wall, I’m afraid. The future web dev paradigm is already being speedily developed. (If I had to pick its embodiment right now, I’d lay my money on Meteor.)
Jack Welch said, “Change before you have to.” Don’t wait too long.
