When we start checking what technologies stand behind endless apps we happen to use or just encounter every day, we will often hear Ruby on Rails. Who should know what it is and who can benefit from learning how the Rails framework functions?
Ruby on Rails developers, the professionals who are already in it, say that designers, user interface architects, writers, or software developers not familiar with Rails sooner or later may need to work with Rails developers and integrate their XHTML and CSS into Rails projects. Therefore, they encourage them and future Ruby on Rails developers to get acquainted with this technology.
The Rails framework, first started by David Heinemaier Hansson, and then created and expanded by the Rails Core Team, became a powerful development platform.
The Rails framework has found many enthusiasts among web developers because it is meant to make building web applications simpler and easier. To achieve this goal, the Rails creators provided developers with a large, easily expandable set of building blocks that can be used and re-used to make web applications. The blocks are components of codes that can be used by developers in many ways. What is more, developers can customize these components to create some new functionality they need for their application. It occurs that by using this method of building software, developers need less time to create and maintain their applications. Additionally, developers can easily collaborate with each other and write more uniform codes.
