At the Forge - RJS Templates

The power of Ajax to fetch and run JavaScript generated by your server-side language.
Conclusion

When I first read about RJS templates, I thought it was one of the weirdest ideas I had heard of. That's because the notion of writing JavaScript in Ruby seemed both strange and unnecessary. I now understand the power and cleverness of this type of template and look forward to using it on many of my Ajax-powered sites. With a bit of study and some changes in how you think about Web development, you're likely to make the same discovery.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
