I recently started a new personal web project, using ruby on rails. I’ve been doing a lot of python over the past few months in my work at IntelePeer, and this project reminds me how much I prefer ruby over python. It all just seems cleaner, more consistent as an overall language. I feel reasonably proficient at python now, but ruby feels like a higher-quality tool to me. I was mentally noting 5-10 areas where I missed the ruby way when I was ramping up on python. I should complete that and get it written some day.
In the mean time, I have to refresh my brain a bit on rails. I’m still using 2.3, since that’s what I was familiar with when I left off doing rails stuff about a year ago. Lots of new stuff to learn with rails 3. Some day.
