I love programming languages. It’s almost obscene, but there are few languages that I won’t pick up and find some use for. The possible exception being COBOL.
Anyway, loving languages as I do, I find myself reading a lot of language documentation. Every so often a language (and it’s documentation) will stand out. Ruby is one of those languages that promises to make your life better.
Is it true? Well, if you’re a programmer, you can compare to Python and decide for yourself.
If you’re not a programmer, and I mean you never wrote a fragment of code in your life, you might want to read Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby. It will change the way you think about languages and about language manuals. And it has cartoon foxes. Anything is better with cartoon foxes.
