Urbis.com founder relies on passionate Ruby developers

,----[ Quote ]
| Spurgat had never worked with open source software before he started 
| designing Urbis.com. In fact, he's an actor, director, and producer as well 
| as a writer. Yet, he knew early on he would use OSS. "I asked the developers 
| I was working with in the beginning what was the best. We started working 
| with Ruby before the first version was even deployed. Ruby is a very rapid 
| development environment and it is very good for bottom-up applications like 
| Urbis.com, where we started with a core idea and we continue to build on top 
| of that and make adjustments based on trial and error. It's just faster: one 
| line of code in Ruby equals 10 lines of code in PHP."

| Today it's fun, it takes me about five minutes total, it doesn't require 
| any skills and within seconds I can take part in a worldwide distributed 
| live-communication.
