Rails, Flex, RIA. Oh My!
I found a PDF Book available on the internet called “Flexible Rails”. The book is about integrating the ever popular “Ruby on Rails” framework with the Flex SDK. I browsed the table of contents and found it nothing short of brilliant and purchased the book for a nominal fee of $20. The author proposes that Rails and Flex are a natural fit. I tend to agree. Everyone (who has not been living under a rock in the last year or two) knows that Rails is an incredibly elegant and fast way to develop web applications. The Flex builder will bring those same qualities to designing and building interfaces for your application.
I wholeheartedly recommend checking this book out and buying it if you are at all interested in developing Web 2.0 applications. You can find the book at: http://www.flexiblerails.com/
