I was looking at my 2006 predictions today, and find that they were mostly correct, but that they lacked audacity. The predictions were:
- The mindshare of Ruby on Rails will grow relative to other Web application platforms, in spite of the efforts of devotees of other platforms to come up with their own Rails alternatives. I have a theory about why this is that I’ll elaborate in another post.
Let’s rate them:
- Ruby on Rails has really taken off, and frameworks that seek to capitalize on/head off the Ruby on Rails momentum have been in the works. Thanks in large part to the release of Mongrel, a better tool for deploying Rails applications, Ruby on Rails has done very well.
Not bad for my first set of predictions. I’ll try to come up with some predictions for 2007 next week.
