Documentation With Attitude

It's been a long time since I first came across “Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby” and I’d forgotten just how personable it is compared to standard programming documentation. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate clear, sober documentation but having a personality counts in a way I hadn't expected.

The love and affection Why the Luck Stiff has for the Ruby is palpable: it pours from every cartoon and zany example. It gets me excited about Ruby, a language I wanted to love but wasn't ready for, yet. I suggest reading the chapter I've linked to get your beak wet and see for yourself just how enjoyable it can be to learn about code. And, maybe I'll take another crack at Ruby, or at the very least, flick through another few chapters.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

What is this Place?

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
