Okay, I’ve been hearing about Ruby and even went through the “Try Ruby” on hobbix walk-through. I’ve scripted in Python, another dynamic language, for my Linux bash scripts and I’ve also create a web site to interact with Amazon web services with IronPython (post coming soon on that), but wasn’t impressed enough to pursue learning of Ruby hard-core. After the few posts on LosTechies from Joey, Joe, and Sean, I decided to follow Sean’s advice and watch the screencasts on Ruby.com. I’m not even through the blog creation screencast and I need to post on this.
People go check it out. Here. You’ll be utterly amazed.
I’ll update this post after I see more. Wow!
The speaker’s comment at 11:18, “Yeah, it goes fast, don’t blink.” was priceless.
