Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, nana nana nana!....

Yes, I just started learning Ruby and Rails!!! :D

I'm really into this, at first it looks funny with all its |something| and 1...5 and other strange stuff which make the code look like scrambled eggs!

The amazing thing about Ruby is that you feel like you can basically write anything like current language, like variable.do.amazing.stuff (Ruby will know what to do with this, I'm sure of it!!!)

Just like Ruby, Rails seems to know where everything is, files, methods, etc., as long as you use its conventions (Convention over Configuration).

I learned Python and Django by myself when I had my internship at KNMI and really enjoyed it. Ruby on Rails is an equally amazing framework (even more I must say) and I seem do be falling in love with it! And don't even get me started on the scaffolding which does everything for you!

I am amazed! Sold!

And now I leave you with a song which has been stuck in my head for the last few days (wonder why)!
