A Fairly Ruby Poem

Today I sat down to learn something new. Something that I have readily decided to do. Ruby on Rails spots every application form, and so it seems like it is time for me to conform.

“Fortran is for your granny,” they say! But I prefer to allocate my memory this way…



Don’t judge us mathematicians, we know not what we do. Scientific computing isn’t always pretty and it’s certainly not new.

But if your stuck in the past, you can’t get with the new, and getting stuck is not something that I want to do.

So though Ruby may just sound like some rock, using it’s power will prevent one from being mocked. I discovered some Gems in the rough today, and it is humbling to know I can still learn this way. Trial and error and more error than trial, this is going to take a little while.
