Using Ruby, Sinatra and MongoDB on Windows

After writing about Developing Web Apps on Windows with Vagrant spent some time immersing myself in Ruby and Ruby Gems. Tonight, while catching up on some articles in my Pocket, I ran across the following article from Addy Osmani: Building Backbone.js Apps With Ruby, Sinatra, MongoDB and Haml.

Sweet. In addition to Addy’s very awesome and open-source book Backbone Fundamentals, he’s also writing some useful related articles. And though I’d likely ditch haml in favor of Emblem with Swag, Addy’s article ought to be a good starting point for the Ruby newbie.
