Discussion on: Learn a New Language: Ruby or Go?

I don't know that I'm trying to mount a defence, just observing. Ruby has been "dying" since like 2007 but still has yet to actually get around to it, and I don't think anything is different now except that the language itself is much, much stronger than it ever was back then. I try not to feel too strongly one way or another about these things on a personal level, it's all just tools for a job. Ruby is a pretty good tool, I don't think it's accurate to say that Ruby suffers from the same inherent issues as PHP for greenfield development.
