well i don't think you will find a tutorial specifically on how to write a reading list scheduler in ruby. why not just try making it and then when you get stuck, research something specific that you don't know how to do
i'm actually asking because i love ruby and i want to see it thrive but i'm worried it's fading away
even though PHP may be widely used still, if you actually look at job postings, who's hiring threads, etc. you don't find a ton of php jobs. i'm sure php devs can find a lot of jobs through their network but most startups won't be using it for example
so sure you might be making a lot as a rails dev but is it a worthwhile investment for someone just getting into the industry?
well that's the question though. are the alternatives really better, or is ruby still a competitive language?
if you're extending a class in a dynamically typed programming language and not overriding any of its methods, something is kind of odd
it may seem unsatisfactory to recreate a Person class with a few of the same attributes for each of your programs, so i understand the impulse to go for code re-use, but imo you should just copy and paste the class for each program
