Non-nerdcutted because it's short. [Jan. 18th, 2008|12:10 am]

I saw an ad on the back of a bus for HookHead IT Recruitment. I decided to see if any of my skills were in demand, by throwing in random words. One that I found funny was this ad.

It sounds like it was written by someone who has no clue about technology, and the idea that Ruby On Rails is all one word. Here's a hint: Ruby is a language in its own right. Rails is a big helper for people writing websites in Ruby. Compare it to Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails and Siouxsie & the Banshees. With Trent, you could go see him on his own, the surrounding bits of NIN are optional, where as with Siouxsie, you wouldn't go to see a show of just her with no backing, you'd want to see her with the Banshees or the Creatures.

In that world, Ruby is more like Trent Reznor, someone that can stand alone with Rails/NIN being optional... Not like Siouxsie & the Banshees and to be said all as one word.

Here endeth the rant.
