First of all, those who read this in a feed reader should click on the link to see the new face lift that happened to this blog. Personally, I love it. I’d like to hear your comments on that. A lot of people asked me : “What is a Fleebie?” or “Who is Fleebie?”. I […]
A few days ago, Peter Cooper of rubyinside.com gave me an interview about Ruby Fleebie as well as the last project I worked on, Ecstatik! All in all, it was a great day for me. I hope that those who discovered Ruby Fleebie after reading the interview will enjoy the articles and will stay with […]
Recently, Dan and I have been busy working on a rails application. We put it online a few days ago and now we’re slowly getting at the publicizing phase.
Ruby is known to be slow, even compared to other interpreted languages like python. It’s sad, but it’s true. Does it bother you?
My 2 triabulle friends and me joined forces to work on a web project. Emile pushed hard and convinced both Dan and me to use cakePHP. My first choice was obviously Rails but still I was happy because it would give me the opportunity to try the PHP MVC framework for the first time. Well, I tried it and liked it. It doesn’t have all the features nor the “polished look” that rails may have, but it does the job very, very well.
One of the little things that makes ruby so different is the fact that you can use punctuation in the name of your methods. I could really well be wrong on this, but I think ruby is the only language that allows a programmer to name his method logged? for example. Oh well, I should play it more safe. Let’s say that ruby is the only language I know that allow this.
Think of all the things in ruby that impressed you when you first start using it and try to remember the one that won your heart. It doesn’t has to be a key concept or a complex principle. A simple twist in the syntax that had you say “Wow… I love this!” could do.
I love Ruby. I first learned about it on the Internet several months ago and decided I wanted to give it a try. I was intrigued by the kind of buzz around it. I felt that the Ruby crowd was smaller than the PHP, C# or even python crowd, but those who liked Ruby seemed to like it A LOT.
