Ruby has been fast enough for 13 years

If I have to choose between performance and programmer productivity, I’ll go for programmer productivity everyday. That doesn’t mean I want bad code in less time, but good enough code (based on a tested framework such as rails) in reasonable time. C++ code might give 10x times more performance than Ruby, but either it’ll take too much time to be reasonable, or it might be incredibly hard to read/digest.
