Tradeoffs and Choices: Why Ruby Isn't Python

A session at RuPy : Python & Ruby Conference

Friday 14th October, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (WMT)

When a Pythonista first dives into Ruby, he is confronted with a strange and unusual world. Multiple kinds of functions, implicitness everywhere, violations of the Zen of Python galore! In this talk, Yehuda will talk about the tradeoffs in Ruby's language design: why, in many ways, Ruby couldn't be more like Python even if it wanted to.
