Thesis on Rails

Found an interesting research project documenting the adoption motivations and practices among companies that are using Rails.

The top responses about companies' motivations, rails' features, and the companies' perceptions are, respectively:

  1. that companies desired "Increase[s] in productivity" (97.9%)
  2. that Rails is attractive because it uses the Model-View-Controller framework (87.7%)
  3. that Rails enables faster development of web applications than competing frameworks (92.5%)
