Thank you for this comment. Whenever I'm in a teaching role, I try to always acknowledge how different folks have different learning styles and learn at a different pace — or, I'm trying to design assessments in a way that would not disfavor neurodiverse or just anxious/tired folks. Accessibility (broadly-understood) is something I care deeply about. However, I never thought about that Ruby with its strong preference for convention over configuration and friendly methods actually also helps folks succeed 💖 yet another reason to love this language ✨
