somone recently said to me that a ruby slack channel would be better for ruby discussion than a ruby irc because it is more available to less technical people. I am curious about anyones thoughts on this.
yea, very good question but also didn't take the discussion beyond 'well they can have good input too'
it seems like an oddly controversial topic... im not against it but i really don't see slack as terribly simpler to use than irc. is the real problem just a buzz-service one? new service that has pretty buttons is better?
what do you mean `are represented as hashes`? the outer JSON object is turned into a ruby Hash but any internal data structures pointed to by keys should be preserved, or am i misunderstanding?
