A blog looking at business communication, knowledge management, scripting tools, OS technology news and other things of interest to mobile tech workers. As I find interesting news this will also contain pointers to thoughts related to configuration managment, change management and general software development.
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.
Unfortunately, most of my scripting work is done in perl. When I can choose the tools, I program in Python/Jython. Ruby is interesting to me and I plan to keep an eye on it.
Ruby released its latest version 1.8.0 in August this year.
