Oh wow! I hadn't heard of that book until now, but it seems really cool. I don't know of any books like that for Ruby, although I could be convinced to write some stuff in that direction given an audience. For example, I was trying to find something in my iMessages history a few months ago, so I created a tool that made it easier than scrolling through the Messages app and wrote about it: feifan.blog/2018/02/19/viewing-ime...
I'm geniunely curious about the first half of your response, because we all live in our heads and perceive the world differently — in your experience, do you think you sometimes have trouble solving (code-related) problems? Or maybe you don't see a problem that you think is solvable with a script?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
