Aaah, nothing like a good controversial topic to stir up a holy war
for the weekend.
I’ve posted two different requests for feedback on a project over at my
They boil down to this: I’ve been asked to help a university put
continuing education program to teach Ruby. It will be a three course
series and will end with a Ruby Certification for the students
it. I’d like to collect your opinions about two things:
- Is Ruby ready for/in need of a certification program?
- What should be in a program like this?
I’d like to collect the feedback in blog comments (easier to refer
to them, etc.), but I realize that just bringing it up here is liable to
cause a mailstrom of emails, news posts, etc. – please, at least
try to keep it civil if you’re going to reply here (for whatever value
of here is appropriate for the way you consume ruby-talk)
I’ll now slink away and hide in the corner for a bit.
