Today I found my self looking into a “teach-yourself-ruby-on-rails-with-one -project” I finish a couple of months ago.

Back that time I was curious about one of the so-called Web (2.0) frameworks, of course the Ruby on Rails - as you can notice in the first paragraph :)

Along with that, I was also a bit prying with the buzz around Social Web… Isn’t this included in Web 2.0? Anyway, when I want to learn new frameworks, tools, or anything else, I keep always the same plan. Plan a project, and execute the project, applying what I want to learn. So I did.The final goal of the project is simple as you can imagine, build a complete social service, like Digg and

Note that my primary goal was to learn a new framework, not building the next big thing in social networks. So I kept that tangible objective.

Digging into the technology side of the project, I’ve set my goals a lithe bit more detailed.

First, with no surprises, the project should be implemented in Ruby on Rails.

Second, it should have the following main characteristics:

Few months after the first milestone I found my self so committed that I’ve finished it within 4 months, working after-hours. I’m amazed with the technologies and new things I’ve leaned during those 4 months. Technologies and things that could, and should be, effectively applied to business software. Not only because of the myriad of open tools and frameworks we can use but also because of the social aspects that can be effectively applied to business situations, bringing value to the business, for sure.

So it’s time to go public!

Oh, I forgot to mention that the project hit one of the major milestones: Go Online!

Note: I’ve build the service but I don’t manage the machines hosting it. That’s why you may notice just a little bit of slowness opening some areas of the service :) :)
Seriously, I spent two months optimizing and tuning the code and, as far as possible, the MySql database also.

If you have a bug or a request to report, leave some comment here.

googol de ideias

Ontem instalei o Google Desktop, só para me indexar uns ficheiros que tenho por aqui. Já não me lembro que versão instalei antes desta última!!!! Mas esta agora…. Mais uma conquista no mercado dos sistemas operativos?

Interessou-me a questão técnica da coisa. As minhas futuras soluções terão uns gadgets também assim tão bonitos para o google desktop. Nem que tenha de contratar um geek da google :) :)

Não seria tão “usable” (como dizem os gajos da Usability ou usabilidade em português J:) ) eu interagir com todas as tools que utilizo para trabalhar (e olhem que são mesmo muitas) directamente do meu desktop? Ou de outro qualquer desktop por esse mundo fora, porque não?

Fica a idea para os próximos user interfaces
