Okay, I've decided to take the plunge: I'm going to learn Ruby.

I must admit as a primarily Perl programmer who grew up in primary school using Q-BASIC and Pascal (and was forced to use Visual Basic in high school) my mind seems to been hard-wired for event driven and sequential programming. though I think I have a rough grasp of object orientation. I like how elegantly you can create an object, assign properties and tell them to do things. I'm less enthusiastic when it comes to polymorphism and all that rubbish, but I think that's largely due to my lack of experience!

I've wanted to for ages to learn Ruby because it comes from Japan, and of course it sounds the same as my name ;).

I'll let you know how I go.
