I’m working on learning a couple different tools at once, some of which I’ve mentioned in previous posts. I’ve got some time off of work coming up, so I should be able to make some progress in them and start being productive.
After spending quite a lot of time in C# and TypeScript, it’s kind of nice to go back to Ruby and do a little dynamic programming. Ruby encourages a bit of magic, which can make things pretty convenient but hard to manage in a large team. PHP makes you keep things out in the open a little more, which is nice when you have to figure out how something is done. But it has some kind of unusual syntax choices. It can be kind of a lot to wrap your head around all at once, I’m having a hard time getting into it gradually.
