Me Grok? You Ruby?

So I learnt the basics of Ruby and Ruby on Rails (RoR) this week. I built a simple application following a tutorial, so I don't know if that counts.

Then, yesterday, I discovered Grok, I'm pretty good at discovering things months after they have existed, being launched in October 2006, Grok is already celebrating its first birthday.

Grok represents Zope 3 for humans. A framework that simplifies the way that a developer works with Zope 3. The highlights for me:
  • Less configuration, more time to code
  • It already has the KSS ajax framework, something I have been playing with in the Plone world
So I've been derailed for awhile from my RoR pursuits to look into Grok. If it does what I need I may stay away from the Ruby crowd for awhile longer.
