Another high-profile developer warms up to Ruby

Posted by Curt Hibbs on Tuesday, August 30, 2005

Tim Bray, the co-inventor of XML, has some positive things to say about Ruby. He also, really likes the book Programming Ruby (aka the Pickaxe book):

The book is good; really exceptionally good. And, since there’s no way to avoid comparisons with That Other Language: Based on first impressions and light exposure (a basis that matters a lot) Ruby seems better-documented and easier to get into than Python. I’ve actually written (a little) production code in Python, but I always had the feeling that there was lots of stuff going on I didn’t understand; a couple of days in, I think I have a better grasp on what Ruby’s up to, even where I’m not looking.
