I'm an ex-Django developer who hasn't ever done more ruby than it takes to edit my Sass configuration because it seems like hard work and too many (). I never thought it was n00bish.
I think Rails looks awesome except for maybe getting into monkey patch hell, and the fact that for years I thought the logo was a tentacle.
It's still on my wishlist for things to learn!
Why ex-Django :D ? Where did you migrate to? :D
I moved to agencies which are all PHP, unfortunately.
Try to introduce best practices and frameworks to make your life easier. I've heard good things about Laravel.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
