Howdy partners!

I hereby have a proposition for you all. Besides using breakpoint for debugging your Rails applications what other tools do you use? When I say debugging... I mean… tracking down problems and issues in your application that your tests just aren’t identifying.

Inquiring minds want to know. :-)

Debugging RoundUp!

Post comments with information and links… and I’ll roundup responses and see if I can review a few options in another blog entry.

Thanks in advance!


Rails development in 2006...

It’s been almost a year since Curt Hibbs article, Rolling with Ruby on Rails was published on ONLamp. Since then we’ve witnessed this huge community of talented individuals emerge . Wow. What a year.

Your Thoughts?

Will 2006 be an even bigger year for the Rails project? Will we see more development firms emerge with highly talented Rails developers? What is everybody doing currently and what are they planning on doing? Conferences… books… fun… fun… fun.

Viva la Argonistas!

At PLANET ARGON, we’re in the middle of a complete reorganization of how we can be of better service to you. As of the start of this year… we are bigger, better, and you’ll likely notice some new faces. Who? We’re not telling (quite) yet. ;-)

What I can promise:


PLANET ARGON: January 2006


I wish you all the best in 2006!

Continue to stay tuned…
