Ruby as Java pseudo code

March 8, 2005

I laughed out loud when I saw that Brian uses Ruby syntax as Java pseudo-code to describe a Web framework. It might be caused by too much exposure to Ruby On Rails!

Brian is right: his Ruby pseudo code is clearer than equivalent Java code. It is a testimony of Ruby expressiveness and, sadly, of the lack of it in Java.

As an aside, very interesting stuff Brian!
