Figured I wanted to start doing some development in Rails today (my Ruby is certainly rusty, if it was ever sharp) — Starting a project that I thought of a long time ago, a SaaS that handles documentation storage. A real simple app, it will probably be useful to people only if it’s full of stuff (but that’s no problem, I know some sectors that would really appreciate something like this, car communities for example)

Making the rails app was ridiculously easy, and setting up some basic routes and views were a breeze, despite being chained to rails 2.3.15 & ruby 1.8.7 (hosting through Hostgator)…

Going to flesh out the design and make a really simple app and see how things go. Working on this on the side will be interesting, should serve to help me keep SOME rails skills.
