re: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to? VIEW POST


Like how Python was your first language you learned, Ruby was my first language I learned (at least since the days I was playing with Perl in high school) and it has been my favorite since. A lot of how you described Python, I think applies to Ruby as well. It is simply enjoyable to write and a pleasure to read.

I have taught coding students Ruby and love how accessible it is to people entering the field. When I attended my first RubyConf and got the chance to meet Yukihiro Matsumoto ("Matz") for the first time, I realized that only someone as kind and thoughtful could create a language that is so intuitive and kind to its users.
