Your link for 2018 Developer Skills Report is great for developers to decide what to learn.
Your post is great for Ruby, thanks.
Thank you, Chenge!
Great post! I love Ruby.
btw, I'd suggest the link for the Rails doctrine too
Thanks, Lucas! And yes, Rails doctrine should be included in the list for sure!
btw, I just found out about the ruby toolbox which is great too: ruby-toolbox.com/
Wow! Thank you so much, Lucas! Can I add this source to the article as well? It's great!
Of course :)
Thank you very much! :)
I've got a lot of questions about that survey, but #1 is why people "prefer" C.
It's like writing a book in ancient Latin. Sure, you can do it, but there's words missing for pretty much everything that was invented in the last four hundred years.
Ruby is a fantastic language and it's good to see it remains popular.
One thing to add is that JRuby is a huge game-changer for Ruby. It gets rid of the "Global Interpreter Lock" and means your Ruby code can now take full advantage of ridiculously multi-core systems if your workload can be run in parallel.
p.s. Have no idea why people prefer 'C', but it is only on the 23rd place. However, the main point is in that Ruby is in top-5.
On the "What languages do developers prefer by age?" chart it's inexplicably second.
Also utterly baffling is Swift, which is a great language, seems exceptionally popular with the 55+ group. This data is highly questionable.
This just made me miss programming in Rails 😭
Thanks! You can always turn back to Rails :D
Thank you for this Iren. Especially speaking to the strengths, weaknesses, and additional resources. This will give me something to sink my teeth into after Golang :).
Thank you for the comment, David! My pleasure!
