comment What are the best FizzBuzz questions for interviewing a candidate for a Software Developer role?
@Jon, I could probably trip myself up with a simple problem. Kind of like being able to do complex Calculus in one's head and yet messing up simple addition. A balanced approach is more likely to net you a better candidate, imo.

comment Ruby on Rails downsides and caveats
+1, for valid points. That being said, you can do a lot to optimize Rails applications. Rack lends its self to being a rather extensible system that allows for a lot of flexibility in how everything gets called. Not to mention, Ruby 1.9 is faster, JRuby is faster. I personally am a big fan of JRuby, being able to mix in the power of the JVM is a wonderful win (just be careful of gems which use exceptions for flow control -> huge overhead)
