Annoucing DPP's Ruby Playground


#1

Folks,

I’ve just put up a wiki for tips, tricks, code snippets, and rants
related
to Ruby.

“Dude, there are a ton of Ruby information sources, what makes yours
different?”

Glad you asked…

  • I’ve been a hard-core Java guy since 1996 (I ran the first
    large-scale WebLogic deployment) and have recently fallen in lust
    with
    Ruby. You’ll see that flavor running through the site. Ruby is the
    Java of
    the next 10 years.
  • I was once a hard-core NextStep guy (I wrote the Mesa spreadsheet
    for NextStep) who learned to do programing in Objective-C with a
    SmallTalk
    style UI framework. You’ll see that flavor running through the site.
    Ruby
    feels so much like Objective-C. I’m surprised there isn’t a project
    to
    build Interface Builder in Ruby (boy… that’d be kick-ass.)
  • I’ve written a bunch of Domain Specific Languages (see
    http://web.archive.org/web/20011005170055/www.smartmode.com/index.htm).
    I recently re-implemented SiteMap in Ruby (it’s a Ruby Forge
    project.)
    It took ~ 6,000 LOC in Java and ~800 LOC in Ruby. You’ll see some
    DSL
    flavor running through the site.

So if you’re a NextStep/OS X/Interface Builder to Java to Ruby to DSL
kind
of person or have stuff in common with some of those items, come play in
my
Ruby playground.

Thanks and I look forward to everybody’s inputs and contributions.

David

Sure. What’s the URL?
