[12:45:32] strcmp1: i don't want to discuss it, believe me, but this is getting just a tad bit ridiculous
[12:49:07] strcmp1: apeiros: it's not a word in my vocabulary, however, i think you are misguided if you believe this type of policing of words is actually a good thing. it's the other extreme. no extreme is good.
[12:59:55] strcmp1: apeiros: I won't return to this channel anymore. I think this is just unbelievably ridiculous. I am came here to discuss ruby, that's it. I do not care if people used words towards me that are in no way derogatory unless you take an extreme position which considers 'guys' to be a derogatory word. females use that word to describe a group of females, and males do the same. i know this, because i am a native english speaker, and you are not.
[00:11:24] strcmp1: have i come to the right place to meet people who hate computers and want to live in a world more like 1901?
[16:12:07] strcmp1: huck5, if is just a bunch of IDs, sending param key as 'the_ids=1,2,3,4] will make params[:the_ids] = [1,2,3,4]
[16:13:20] strcmp1: oh im sure that suggestion is not standard at all, there is def a way for rails to handle all this for you
[03:32:49] strcmp1: pwnd_nsfw, there's still times when its preferable to use raw SQL over AR abstractions
[09:03:44] strcmp1: yeah getting your foot in the door is always the hard part when you have no prior experience
[09:06:21] strcmp1: chipotle, without prior experience/recommendation it can be hard though. you might find something that can mix your drupal/PHP/wordpress(?) skills with ruby,i saw one exact job like that on weworkremotely a while ago actually. so i wouldnt worry too much.
[09:47:19] strcmp1: idk if i agree that it is hard or not. it has concepts that can be hard to grasp, and it doesn't give any kind of crash course for those concepts (back when i learnt it).
[09:49:16] strcmp1: i cant remember how i learnt rails, i know i learnt ruby first and was way more interested in that. rails felt like a breeze after that, just APIs, and learning wtf MVC is.
[09:52:21] strcmp1: i actually think the people who would find it hardest would be PHP programmers, because i imagine most arent familiar with any comp sci concepts and just wanted something quick+dirty+easy(PHP)
[09:54:04] strcmp1: when i learnt ruby/rails i wasnt familiar with anything but perl + weird sh hacks. i found rails to be too much, so i focused on ruby and came back. then it was easy.
[18:48:24] strcmp1: my opinion isnt based on any numbers or stats though but i think its more likely other languages would outpace elixir (like Crystal, much more promising to me)
[18:51:47] strcmp1: tubbo, its syntax takes inspiration from ruby all over the place, but its not the same in all cases and as a language it is definitely distinctively different. it will have its own concurrency model, its statically typed, compiles to machine code, and so on. the guys behind it wanted it for high perf web services (kinda like Go)
[18:52:53] strcmp1: it started to make decisions that break with "the ruby way" a few months ago, and havent stopped since then.
[07:55:05] strcmp1: thats how it works, return value of that method on String doesnt really matter for it to work.
