“Stop evangelising [..] you’re wasting your time” : September’s Troll of the Month
This month's "Troll of the Month" is Ruby vs Python - why no-one should care by Cynos. Cynos touches on a point I've seen raised a few times in the past month.. namely that Python and Ruby are similar and are, supposedly, 'converging'. He argues, therefore, that both communities should stop evangelizing to each other. Despite a reasonable, if baited, argument, however, the comments quickly turn into a pointless flamewar:
- and when you unfairly malign nice people because of the programming language that they use [...] that I can only assume you're a born again Ruby user
- I don't really care about either language, but if I had to pick one I'd go with Python. Why? Because Ruby is surrounded by the "graphic designers" of programming; people who's sole concern is looking the part, saying the right buzzwords but not producing the goods.
