Today is Day Three of RubyConf2004 and I’m tired. This has been a good conference. Lots of stuff to think about and play with. Lots of code flying around and lots of laptops all in one room. I was up until 02:00 this morning working on an ADO adapter for Active Record in order to talk to SQL Server. I’ve got about 40 failing tests right now (out of 143) so I’m closing in on finishing… It’s been interesting. I only just began looking at Active Record yesterday morning, so I think I’m doing pretty well. Active Record is an OR framework in Ruby that is really simple to work with. Very cool. It’s part of the Rails suite, which is an MVC framework for building websites in Ruby. Very intriguing.
