Ruby and some updates


So, I’ve been quite busy learning some new things in the last couple of weeks which is why I haven’t been blogging or writing articles.  Amongst the things that I’ve been busy with is writing some articles for Code Project which I’m hoping to publish in the next month or so.  Some of the other things I’ve been busy with is playing with Ruby and the toolkits currently available in that space.  Coming from a Java/C# background it’s been quite an experience jumping into the declarative dynamic world of Ruby and I must say that the more I play with it the more I’m starting to enjoy it.  So, my setup is something like the article that you’ll be able to find on this site here.  In the quest of learning more and more technologies and writing these articles I’ve come to appreciate the ability to slow down (in my private time) and to really think about what I’ve been doing and how all this newly found knowledge will affect my trend of thought and the way that I go forward in development and technology.  As I state somewhere on this site, it’s all about using the right tool for the right job.  Just because I’m a C# developer with a Java background doesn’t mean that those are always the right tools to get things done.  Yes you may be able to do anything in your chosen technology, but does that allow you to really understand the problem you’re trying to solve or does it really make the Technology you use and the constraints it introduces your main focal point.  As I’ve learned, the more you know, the less constrained you are by what you don’t know…  Maybe ignorance is bliss and we should simply continue in the way that we always have, but then where’s the fun in that right?  :-)
