From the desk of Alex Payne:
All of us working on Twitter are big Ruby fans, but I think it’s worth being frank that this isn’t one of those relativistic language issues. Ruby is slow.
Yep. Dynamic Language performance sure does count… Read the whole thing.
yes, an enlightening article. Slower than Python, sheesh!
of course, rapid development of a system can be a key point in making/breaking it. Would they have gotten Twitter off the ground if they had chosen a different framework?
Does this mean the RonR model is good mainly for prototyping and startup? Then once you’ve proven its
viable, and/or need to scale you switch gears? What’s the
next step: Pyhon/TurboGears, PHP/Cake, Java/?, or .Net stacks?
