Another Rails blogger


Hi I’m Tim Lucas and I’ve joined the team here at Sitepoint to keep you up-to-date with what’s going on in Rails land.

I come from a software development and usability background, a similar mix from where Rails started, and since hopping on the Rails train over 15 months ago I’ve developed a number of large applications for organisations in Oz, released a few plugins and can now be found stumbling around the hallways mumbling class def extend, deploy deploy!

It was a pleasure to meet you and be sure to stay peeled for more activity on the Rails blog from here on in.

    Looking forward to your input here, Tim. As someone who is still dipping his toes into the Rails pool (and it’s frrrresh!;)), I was hoping for good things from this blog. Please don’t let me down! :p

    Got any any good stuff you gonna do first up, edit in place would be cool.

    Luke: looks like your wish was granted, though not by me, but Alex Bunardzic with his simple explanation of how simple in_place_edit is.
