What i love the most about Rails/Ruby is the top-notch quality of documentation.
I don't know how good your favorite language is, what i care first is documentation.
Because without good documentation, how good knowledge can be shared and improved ?
I also feel like error messages have been really improving over time.
I said this thing by having little experience with "non-toy languages", what i see is non-existing or very bad quality of documentation. They said: Type is documentation. It's not an excuse for not having a good documentation to welcome and share knowledge among community. It made me sad.
I've been doing Qt in the past and title of top notch documentation (in my personal opinion) is still with Qt.
With Rails you have to read up comments and issues on GitHub.it feels like documentation is a bit behind from actual usage...
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.
