More "Ruby for Java developers"


#1

There’s a new article on IBM developerWorks called “Ruby off the Rails”:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-ruby/

It’s pointing out various nifty things about Ruby for those Java
developers (and other folks) whose only interaction with Ruby has been
via Rails. It’s a “Ruby’s good for Rails, and good on its own, too”
kind of thing.

I like the section headings… “Collections done right”, good stuff.

Yours,

Tom

Huh, it is really written from a very Javanese perspective:

| First, Ruby has no brackets or semicolons, and it makes types completely
| optional.

But apart from that, of course, it’s always nice to see people
understanding
where Ruby can help them better than other langauges.

Ruby has lots of brackets and braces. And you can use semi-colons.
And it is a strongly-typed language.

Grr.

Yea - that’s why I quoted the above sentence. :wink:
