  • Several of the major pro-/anti-Rails-hype spats are recognisable in there.

    1. “Scaffolding is a toy.” (Rails screencasts almost inevitably tend to be demonstrations of building blog engines built in five minutes.)
    2. ActiveRecord lacks support for composite primary keys and in fact for any SQL schema that does not follow a narrow set of conventions.
    3. Derek Sivers ditched Rails in favour of PHP for CDBaby, found himself very pleased at the result, and wrote about it, causing a huge outrage.
    4. DHH is notorious for opining in a purposely controversial way.
    5. The Rails bloggers are constantly told they are a hype echo chamber and face ridicule over their use of I-know-it-when-I-see-it labels for old concepts, like “DSL” and “BDD.”

    But if any of that doesn’t convince you, “PHP 3.2” should be the clincher – I mean, c’mon.
