Great programmers answer questions

In this blog entry the author presents a answers to questions he sent to some great programmers. I found it interesting, especially
  • DHH considers writing HTML "programming" (well, sort of)
  • Peter Norvig (Research Director at Google) wants to learn Flash
Shame, that Roy Fielding (of REST fame) did not answer.

Enterprise Ruby?

Yikes! Just saw this article on Enterprise Ruby. Well, it's been said that you can program Fortran in any language. I'd like to ammend that with: you can re-create Java EE with any language.

IntelliJ and Rails

After I had seen this post where it was announced that the next version of IntelliJ (still a GREAT IDE for Java) will support Rails. Well, now it's been released and there's no word about it. A search on the JetBrains site gives no hits for "Rails" either (not even as a plugin). Very disapointing. Will have to stick with RADRails then. Or does any reader know if Rails for IntelliJ is still/already alive/available?

UPDATE: Dmitry has provided a link for the plugin (see comments). Thanks, Dmitry! Given JetBrain's history with IDEs I am very much looking forward to giving this a try.
