  • I'm finding it interesting doing Ruby fulltime right now. The PR says Ruby is fantastically effective and time saving, etc.

    On actually using it and becoming proficient, I'm finding it's less efficient to write. I think I'm concluding that a competent Perl programmer ought to have better, less buggy code with more features than a Ruby programmer. I don't do Rails though.

    Right now, it seems to be coming down to things like Perl's better error detection, a built-up toolchain, and CPAN's metadata.

    I mention this as a potentially interesting example of PR vs reality.
