New Ruby blog: RubyPlanet.net

I am the author of one Ruby book (for Apress) and I use Ruby a lot in
my work. I decided to create a separate blog just for my new writing
on Ruby. Hopefully you will enjoy it :slight_smile:

Thanks, Mark, I’ll check it out :slight_smile:

I’m working on an AI project right now, actually, for one of my school
courses. I just got back from a BBQ with some of my classmates where we
fought our AI against eachother. Mine went 4-1, I was just sitting down
to
implement alpha-beta, and I might possibly try out congruence classes if
I
have time (iffy). Then test my weightings for the heuristic to see which
offer the best results (probably going to write a script to fight
several
different versions of the robot against eachother and see which weights
win
most often).

I have the Manning book “Algorithms of the Intelligent Web” but it’s for
Java (which I actually respect more, after this AI project, since the
algorithm portion of the project is implemented in Java – the interface
is
Sinatra). “Scripting Intelligence” looks like it addresses a lot of
similar
topics from a Ruby perspective, should I check it out? (or is it a
tautology
to ask an author if you should check out their book? :wink:

Anyway, thanks for the heads up, I’ll add RubyPlanet to my RSS.

Hi Mark, great to hear! I’ve been following you on Twitter for a while
(or maybe ‘stalking’ ? ). I am vaguely saddened to see that the
website’s url isn’thttp://rubypla.net;-)

Hello Josh,

My last book was not so much about AI as it is about information
gathering and processing, with a view towards scaling web apps, using
Hadoop, a bit about the semantic web, etc.
