Crush The Python: A Ruby Propaganda Poster

By Peter Cooper / June 20, 2010

Earlier today, someone on Twitter linked up this fun "Ruby propaganda" poster by Paul Battley. I asked him if I could post a copy here for fun and he pointed out that it's six years old! With Ruby sliding down the TIOBE index a couple of places, though, perhaps it's time to revive it ;-)

Update: Since the flames have already begun, this is just a fun, tongue in cheek link to a poster I thought was cool. No language wars needed!


  1. Andrew Grimm says:

    Ruby doesn't seem to be taking any market share away from PHP. Is anyone here a little surprised at that?

  2. Jason Green says:

    yeah a little surprised! I was expecting the uptake of Ruby / Rails to be much quicker than it has been. However it is a steady beast and is slowly working its magic...

  3. Nick Treadway says:

    That is some good art.

  4. taotetek says:

    I guess this sort of thing is needed to bolster your ego, when the language you've bet your career on is steadily losing market share.
