re: Is Ruby more readable and maintainable than C# and Java, What are its advantages compared to C# and Java ?

There are people that will argue both sides of whether or not Ruby is more readable or maintainable than other languages. I think Ruby and Rails are both best suited for disciplined, sometimes smaller, teams. I think this actually enhances the "designed for happiness" aspect of the language. Here are some of the reasons I find Ruby so enjoyable.

  1. Brevity - syntax is very developer friendly, you can do a lot with a little
  2. Speed - unparalleled developer productivity
  3. Power - it's a very sharp tool that provides power when you need it
  4. Community - top notch people always willing to help and contribute
code of conduct - report abuse
