It was a couple of years ago when I was introduced to Haml. I believe my first time working with it was on an inherited project. The markup was very unfamiliar and a bit of a pain. Why would anyone want to abstract out HTML when you could just write it normally? It initially seemed like a needless, intermediary step.
I did recognize some of it's benefits. For example, it is nice to not have to worry about closing tags and the amount of typing it could save was pretty obvious. However, the indentation and other quirks seemed like a little too much to put up with.
So I went about my day, turning my nose up at the mention of Haml. Too cool for school, right?

We’ve been working on a project recently in which our designs called for a hover dropdown menu that did not close until the user clicks outside of the drop-down. Creating something like this in jQuery and in a Ruby on Rails app would have been a no-brainer. But I quickly discovered it wasn’t going to be quite so straightforward in our new Ember app.

We are proud to announce that we have released the results for the 2014 Ruby on Rails Hosting Survey! This year was an interesting challenge for us because we decided to display the results from previous years along with this year’s data.
How did we do that, you may ask? Charts! If a question was asked in a previous year, the viewer may switch the active color of the chart to highlight the data for that specific year. Neat-o!
We’ve made comments about what has changed throughout the years, but we want you to play around with the data and compare.
Thank you to everyone who participated this year!
Take a look at the Ruby on Rails Hosting Survey 2014.
