Looking forward to 2009
Third in the lists series.
Here are the tech things I’m looking forward to in 2009 (most related to Web development):
- Watching Merb and Rails merge
- Adoption of Python 3, even though Python still irks me
- DataMapper 1.0
- A Web framework that’s more of a library, less of a harness to plug things into†
- Hearing more from Arc

†That is, I want to be able to run my application from the command line…
/home/webapps/myblog $ ./myblog.rb start
…or write a program that incorporates it…
#!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'myblog' if __FILE__ == $0 MyBlog::Controllers::Posts.do_stuff end
…in the way of normal Ruby applications.
