I started with a CodeAcademy course before working on my first Rails project. The language is easy to read and Rails is an amazing framework. The online community is fantastic, the documentation is amazing, and there is no shortage of Ruby Gems which allows you to quickly "cobble" together a new project.
C# is the most productive production language - it exposes a lot of functional conveniences along with the robustness of strong typing. And they're finally embracing the open source community - a huge plus.
We use the basic syntax (
while) and object oriented constructs (classes, very simple inheritance).
We also use lambdas and block methods extensively, an intermediate level programming construct, but in a very formulaic and predictable way.
Only thing worth noting here is that we saw some major issues with memory swapping on Heroku with Ruby 2.1.2. We weren’t the only ones. So we actually reverted back to 2.0.0. Here’s what happened: . We’re planning to upgrade to 2.1.4 once we’ve had time to test thoroughly.
When we are comparing Turing complete languages it's not about what compiles faster or to the cleanest machine code, it's about what the developer can think in and write faster, including the availability of libraries. A couple of times I wrote some ruby scripts for this project. I just like the language best for some things. Love the syntax.
Markdown represents a highly portable and lightweight text formatting. I had converted all of my Wordpress posts to Markdown prior to migrating over to Jekyll and eventually to Hugo. The fact that many generators support Markdown means that my content remains portable regardless of the platform/engine I use.
We are primarily a Ruby shop; our main apps are running on Ruby + Rails, our Slack bot is written in Ruby and our smaller projects are on Sinatra. It makes it really easy for us to re-use code and switch between different projects since they are all on the same language.
PrometheanTV has used .NET and C# for several back-end applications and services including the Morphic Video Task System utilized to stream video assets to a variety of video delivery platforms including, Akamai, Brightcove, and others.
What you see is not what you get, never it is.
Documentation is better in Markdown format. You don’t need anything special to read it.
It is compact, portable, comparable.
Markdown is my text file format of choice.
Because happiness. Testing via RSpec (mostly model and request specs), Factory Girl for fixtures, VCR for testing API responses, timecop, Redcarpet for Markdown rendering, Intercom gem for posting events.
Most of our services are written in Ruby. We started out as a Ruby shop, but we're slowly also moving some stuff to Go. We're using Go more and more these days, actually, including some backend services.
Because it is almost an effortless markup language without ever having to write an HTML tag. Of course, you'll want to use it in environments that make it look pretty (GitHub, etc.)
The main Carbonmade backend / API is written in C# and is ready to run on the CLR. We currently host on Windows but are preparing to migrate to Linux when the CoreCLR stabilizes.
