Judging by the web development communities I’m lucky enough to be a part of, Ruby [mostly on rails, I believe] is one of the hottest languages at the moment. Twitter tells me that as a Ruby developer you can name your salary, and forums and blogs inform me that Ruby is, [dare I say it?] fun.
Despite that, I’m not feeling the love. Not yet, anyway.
I know that I’ve still got a long way to go in the Odin Project [the tracker at the top tells me I’ve completed 44% of the course…] so I really need to push my preferences to the side if they’re going to be slowing my progress like this. On the up side, I think it’s good that I’ve identified a possible reason why I might be dragging my heels, but the hard part is going to be dealing with it!
Onwards and upwards, eh?
One thought on “My First [not-so-triumphant!] Foray into Ruby”
I agree totally, I didn’t like Ruby a ton at first either. Once you get into the actual Ruby chapter (which I am just starting now) you might get to like it more though. I certainly am.
