Forcing myself to learn RoR
I don't want to learn Ruby on Rails.
I have no really good reasons why not. I don't really have that much time, but that's just an excuse. Right now I could be learning it, but I just sidetracked myself to write a blog post about what I should be doing.
I already know PHP (And Symfony2), .NET (And ASP.NET), Node.js (And Express) and a little Python (And Django) so why bother with Ruby (And RoR)? (Oh... I might look at Java later... but that's just annoying)
- node.js will do nicely there. (Oh crud - I forgot this means I have to learn SASS as well).
I just don't need another server-side MVC language... The tutorial is awesome, but I'm building a REST-full-ish MVC app. That's so 2010. And PHP (Symfony) already does it quite well (OMG type casting. I'm a monster).
But I'm learning it anyway because there's nothing like learning a new language. And you never know what project it might be good for sometime in the future.
One last rant: "Jump off a cliff. If you have a bungee cord attached." I don't like it one bit. If this Then that. It works, it makes sense, it's easy to read, why screw with it.
Anyway. Back to it.
