Ruby, Wrapping Up

My notes on the final section on Ruby from Seven Languages in Seven Days by Bruce Tate.

Ruby certainly seems to be a tight, fun language. Although the lack of an IDE is a negative for me, especially since I don’t have encyclopedic knowledge of the libraries. But it would be worth it to learn the basics to have a nice scripting language.

I was curious as to how a professional Ruby project might look. How namespaces are handled, how the directory structure goes, etc.

I was surprised we weren’t spending more time with Ruby. I guess I didn’t realize that we were getting four days off every week.
