Ruby is, by far, my favorite language. It’s an absolute joy to program in. I greatly appreciate the clear attempts the language makes to improve my experience as a writer of code. I love the lonely operator: &. You must watch Matz’s explanation for that one. I have basically mandated that I will always have one Rails project live so that, even though I’m creating games now, I will always have a reason to come back and touch Ruby every once in a while.
