Bang the gong, the game is on: What can Python people learn from Ruby?

A session at PyCon Australia 2014

Saturday 2nd August, 2014

2:10pm to 2:40pm (EST)

What has Ruby got that Python people could learn from? Turns out quite a lot.

Ruby's a bit of a cross between Python and Perl, and borrows heavily from them both.

What does Ruby do well that we can learn from, and also, what does Python do wonderfully? (Hint: a lot).
This presentation will give a quick overview of the major syntactic differences, an understanding of the (superior) object model (whose?), and a quick coverage of some of the Ruby standard library.

If you want a quick leg-up on Ruby vs Python, this quick tour will give that to you. And in doing so, will improve your appreciation for and understanding of Python.
