Nice list!

We are a rails company in London and have a blog here: blog.dynamic50.com


Jacek Becela March 12, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Thanks, I was missing some of those in my reader.

OPML list would be very useful.


Shane March 12, 2009 at 3:28 pm

ELC Technologies is an international Rails company with an excellent blog.


Ric Roberts March 12, 2009 at 4:30 pm

Thanks. Good idea to publish it as an OPML list too.


Antonio Cangiano March 12, 2009 at 4:39 pm

Hi Satish,

thanks for the inclusion. Could you also include DB2 on Rails (http://db2onrails.com) in there?



Jon Yurek March 12, 2009 at 7:01 pm

Giant Robots is actually the company blog of thoughtbot, not my personal blog. Thanks for the link, though!


Frantz Gauthier March 12, 2009 at 8:02 pm

Thanks, but I’ve got some difficulties to import your opml on some plateforms (netvibes, google reader, …).
I’ve created 3 tabs to centralize this feeds maybe it can help someone :







Eldon Alameda March 12, 2009 at 9:13 pm


Really appreciate the link. Unfortunately I’m just wrapping up the launch of a new blog that will be more code/development focused and was wondering if you could update my link above with the new address at simplifi.es

– Eldon


Amit Kumar March 12, 2009 at 9:33 pm

Great list…
I had most of them RSS fed… but good to have them altogether…

Nice list. Thanks.

Damn you! :) I have a hard enough time keeping up with all my feeds as it is, and now I have more to add…


Bob McWhirter March 20, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Would you mind adding OddThesis.org to the list? We’re all about building a JRuby-based solid Ruby/Rails/Rack deployment & runtime environment.

Great efforts! I have some of them. But i will add more now.


Tom April 23, 2009 at 11:17 am

Sorry, that’s Giles Bowkett.


Jeff April 28, 2009 at 8:35 pm

This is a great list; a veritable gold mine for a Ruby newbie like me.

But let me pose a question to the readers and those who post here: How many hours (on average) per day, or per week do you spend reading blogs? Which ones do you focus on, and why?


Santiago Pastorino June 9, 2009 at 4:43 am

Great list!

We are a rails company (WyeWorks) in Uruguay and our blog (The team’s voice) is http://blog.wyeworks.com.
