Ruby Tuesday #24 : When to use Ruby
At Oredev last week, Holmesy and I had an interesting chat with Charles Nutter about Ruby, JRuby, IronRuby and, well, all things Ruby. Marc’s posted some video of it here. One of the topics we discussed after the bit we filmed is when you should use a dynamic language versus a static language. I’ve heard a variety of opinions on this topic before, so I was interested to hear Charles’ suggestion that you should build your frameworks in a static language and your applications in a dynamic language – at least I think that’s what he said. Great to get different thoughts and perspectives on this topic.
