That is why the innovative and crazy people have left the Ruby on Rails community.
As someone who likes to consider myself relatively innovative and crazy, and as a dedicated Rails dev, I do take exception to this statement though
I think the Rails community has loads of innovative people and innovation. However, that doesn’t mean that the Rails community are constantly trying to reinvent the wheel - instead it’s more about how to incrementally improve Rails and use it in innovative ways. I think a lot of the tech inside Exercism is a good testament to that - there’s lots of original stuff that we do (analyzers, representers, the whole online editor infrastructure) - all of which is grounded in Rails, but uses other technologies around it to be.
Anyway, I think this is a helpful and interesting post. Thanks! Good luck with your Rails journey and feel free to peruse the Exercism website repo if you’re looking for a pretty solid and interesting Rails project (if I do say so myself )
