Let the ruby shine !

Recently I’ve discovered the Ruby Scripting langauge for me. And got dependent of it 🙂 Programming has never been so much fun as i have now, with ruby. It’s not simple source code development, its the continuous attempt to wirte the code the ruby way. In ruby its possible to produce very concise but still well readable code. In only one week i produced more source codes in ruby, than i did in all other languages over all past time. You get the idea for some programm or algorithm, you fire up the ditor, write down your code, make debugging, read some additional info in web on that special issue. and you are done. Ruby is as transparent as possible. Java ? No, thanks. I dont want to cancel all my previous expierience with Java, but Ruby is much more lightweight, and it has less syntax boundaries the ruby language is very natural, all concepts are well documented, every part of the language is consistent with the other part.  In Java there are many „black-box“ concepts. You are forced to use code while  you never understood why this code  works. In ruby every single syntactical construct is well documented or discussed on the web. Ruby uses conventions, but you can always use your own way of doing it and come to the same result. Less efficiently, maybe, but still. And after getting more understanding for better syntactical constructs you may rewrite your code into more efficient one.  

I’m totally (positively) smashed by Ruby. It just took me over 🙂

May be i will post some stories with sources of my ruby adventures later.
