    I knew that subject would get your attention Smiley

    I've never programmed in Ruby before, but I just watched these impressive presentations on Ruby on Rails, and I would love to see the ASP.NET community counter with demos of their own:

    http://rubyonrails.org/screencasts

    While Ruby on Rails may seem to allow one to get a simple app up and running quickly, ASP.NET has a whole lot less *total* code, even if it may take a bit longer. For example, I bet that blog demo can be done in ASP.NET with one .aspx file with little or no code-behind and a web.config, plus an .mdf.

    Symfony looked cool too: http://downloads.symfony-project.com/demo/cart/cart.mov

    Thoughts?
