Ruby is a scripting language at its core. One command after another. Almost brutally simplistic.
I’d recommend opening up IRB and typing some commands. It’s actually pretty close to coding in the environment.
Ruby is sort of object oriented, sort of functional, and has a few ways to do the same thing most of the time. It’s a bit of a free-for-all.
Sounds like a blast, honestly.
It's so much about personal taste, but I really love how much care has gone into the language. It's a language that is more art than science and there are plenty of folks that find it distasteful.
But if it "fits your brain" it really is a blast.
I see some Ruby in DEV - "Matz is nice, so we are nice"
Sololearn and Treehouse now im working througfh some Middleman and Sinatra
