    Cool I can't believe there is no Ruby forum!!!

    If you want this site to excel as the top coder community, you need to keep up with the developments. Ruby is growing FAST, and its time to recognize it.

    I haven't even gotten past the first chapter of my new Ruby book but I'm already convinced that this language is a winner.

    But PHP does everything that I need. Along with the fact that there is a much (much) larger community, more hosting options and more functionality.

    Why switch?

    There is, but it is a sub-forum under the "other server-side languages" forum so it's not really obvious.

    Judging from the number of posts in that forum... Ruby isn't growing THAT fast

    Because Ruby is so much better that user experience MUCH less problems in their code, thus he lack in the useal "help, i get code errors..." threads.

    I must admit I was impressed when I first seen the scaffolding feature in Ruby on Rails some years ago. I just haven't seen the language take off to where I'd consider switching yet. However, I definately check out discussions on the language from time to time. I've also seen more hosting opportunities lately for Ruby. Just needs to be more resources for me to switch.
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    I agree with Ralph, more resources are needed. Ruby is spreading quickly... the book was extremely insightful and it deserves some more attention!

    I enjoy Ruby, but there's nothing wrong with it being a subforum

    Gaining popularity? What evidence is there?
