The Philosophy of Ruby

News from the land of High Level Languages.

Like the author of this post, I prefer python to ruby but dabbled with it and do find it a pleasure to program in. Its interesting how Matz took the 'feeling' of programming in ruby into account as he designed and built it. Certainly seems to work for me.

Ruby released its latest version 1.8.0 in August this year.
