For those like me who may be wondering if web development is cool, the place to start is Ruby on Rails. Rails is a much famous web application framework, valued for its agility. In Rails home page, there's an interesting video of someone creating a complete web site in 15 minutes. An exciting tutorial is available in ONLamp.com web site, "Rolling with Ruby on Rails Revisited". Unfortunatelly I haven't found (as of April 2007) any free comprehensive manual of Rails on-line (there's a good oportunity here, eh ? :-) ), so I've decided to buy the book (Agile web development with Rails).
PS: for those who want to stick with python, an alternative to Rails is available, and it's called TurboGears ;-).
