Today Smashing Magazine published an article I wrote last week about Ruby on Rails. Instead of just doing another tutorial, I gave a rough overview of how Rails works, together with a lot of praise of the language and the framework.

I tried to spark interest in Rails and Ruby and judging from the first comments I think it worked :)

The text released today is only the first part, covering just enough Ruby to understand the second part coming out next week. If you like the article, please digg it or promote it on reddit/delicious/slashdot.
