A few days ago I had a new blog post published on the Engine Yard Blog. The post was actually written, before my last blog post here, and is really more on the same subject; get out there and cross-pollinate. Learn, and share with other tech communities.
You can read the post here: Learning Rails (and Ruby) on the Engine Yard Blog.
I’ve had a lot of positive feedback (on reddit), and surprisingly the only negative feedback I got was via the PHP sub-reddit. I think some people choose to defend their choices simply because they don’t want to have made the wrong ones. But really, there’s no right and wrong answer, and it mostly comes down to preference and little else.
That’s enough meta-commentary from me, read it already!
Everyone has the right to learn the language that suits him.
Most developers (not just PHP) could use another language under their belt. It certainly helps to become better at what you do in your day to day.
And if anything, it helps you back up rants and see through the advertising of a lot of frameworks. :)
