Do you believe good web applications can be written in Ruby without using a framework such as Rails? And if so, what do you consider Ruby's greatest strengths, and why would you choose Ruby over others, such as Python, Java, and PHP? Does Ruby have any features that would make a Ruby programmer more efficient, than say a PHP programmer of similiar skills? And if so, does Ruby in Practice focus on any of these features and help you to master them?

Hi folks! I am new to this forum. I have been using Ruby from one year. I am pretty comfortable with Ruby. Ruby is such a pretty cool language where you dont need to worry about the semicolons and stuff like that. It is very user friendly. It has blocks and symbols. You can create your own gems and distribute to the people. Thanks for the Ruby creators.

A guy who has strong concepts in OOPS can be pretty comfortable with Ruby. Even we can build GUI with Ruby. Though it is an interpretted language, we dont feel the difference in the performance. I like Ruby very much.

Ruby supports multi threading as well.. Rails is a simple framework for web apps built upon on Ruby. That happens because Ruby is such a user friendly and easy to use. Even a fresher can come up and learn it in a day and start writing the code.

You dont need to sit for days and days to learn Ruby, because the syntax is very easy. for ex., 5.times do {puts "I am gonna win!"}.

Scite is the editor built with Ruby installer. Why to waste time? Start working with Ruby. Remember i said start working, not start learing.

keep Rocking!

You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
