Happy Tenth Birthday, Ruby on Rails!


The arrival of Ruby on Rails was an important moment in the development of the Web as we know it. It's become so engrained in the fabric of things we may not pay that much attention to it. It took the creator of Ruby on Rails, David Heinemeier Hansson, to tweet that it had been ten years since version 1.0 was released:

Ruby on Rails used the Ruby language and platform to bring a tightly defined framework for creating web applications to everyone. Its initial bait was video in which you could create a blog in 15 minutes. That has given way, through the various versions, to the full stack platform that is still opinionated, albeit with more refined or different opinions that is the current Rails 4.2.

We use Ruby on Rails extensively at Compose and it allows us to move quickly to deliver the user experience you need to be effective managing your database deployments.

Of course, if you ask our team...

... you'll understand why we didn't ask them to write this post.

Happy Tenth Birthday, Ruby on Rails, from everyone at Compose.
