The Ruby world is nuts

June 8th, 2011

Apparently they started out using God, but switched to Bluepill due to its ability to monitor child processes, such as things spawned by Unicorn.

From Episode 166 of The Ruby Show.

    I often wonder if this is why ruby is often disregarded for “serious software”. Explaining that I’m using cucumber and gherkin for testing may confuse the uninitiated and perhaps lead them to suspect I’m just a little bit crazy.

    Just because some developers use silly names …

    Others use non-silly names. But it’s boring to refer to them, I guess.

    @shev I’d rather silly names than silly code.

    @Fábio Ruby isn’t exactly short of the latter either…

    @David – what non-niche language is? ;-)

    @Mike I read your sentence as “Explaining that I’m using cucumber and gherkin for testing may confuse the uninebriated…”

    @mike mainguy But at least it’s used for Serious Business

    At least you’re not using BouncyCastle.

    FWIW, there’s a pull request waiting which adds child processes monitoring to God.

    Thanks for any other great post. The place else could anyone get that kind of information in such an ideal approach of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such information.
