The Rails community drives away another brilliant mind: “A significant number of Rails core contributors - with leadership (if that’s the right word) from DHH - apparently feel that being unwelcoming and “edgy” is not just acceptable, but laudable. The difference between their opinions and mine is so severe that I cannot in good conscience remain a public spokesman for Rails.”
A look at one app's AWS architecture. Nginx, HAProxy, Rails, pgpool II, PostgreSQL, and RabbitMQ. I didn't realize that pgpool II did sharding at the balancer layer; that makes this kind of set up much easier.
Hells yeah! I heard about this a while back, and have been hoping it would get open-sourced. Fantastic.
Read the comment thread for the 8th reason: good lord the Rails community is obnoxious. It's a shame: Rails is such beautiful tech, but it seems to attrack the worst of the rabid fanboy assholes out there.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
“Recently I switched all of my websites to Djanog from Rails and you can see the difference.” Wow, an amazing difference in RAM consumption. Especially surprising given that Python/Django isn't exactly known for low memory usage.
“All the convenience methods and syntactical sugar that makes Rails such a pleasure for coders ends up being absolutely punishing, performance-wise.” That, right there, is why Django is written the way it is.
Why does Ruby on Rails' web site run PHP? Can't support the load, eh?
A relatively through comparison between the speed of Symfony, Rails, and Django. Turns out Django's around 30% faster than Rails.
Contains the best definition of “Enterprise Ready” I've ever read.

This is the type of thing people are compelled to write when they don't have a working automatic web admin :)
The web development community owes Rails and the Rails community a debt of gratitude. I think we should all step back from our personal preferences and plainly say thank you, Rails, for all that you’ve done to move the state of web development forward.
One of the questions asked at Snakes & Rubies was about what Django could learn from Rails (and vice versa). Once I finish wrestling Final Cut Pro to the ground you’ll be able to see how Adrian and David answered the question, but in the meantime it got me thinking about some cool features of Rails that are worth ripping off… er… being inspired by.
