I’ve finally made up my mind about whether I’m going to learn Python or Ruby. I’ve been looking at both for nearly 2 months now, and could not really find a strong reason to use the one or the other. So I’ve simply decided to learn both.
Both Ruby and Python have several good IDE’s. At Arrrr Camp 2009, I got recommended using Aptana RadRails for Ruby (on Rails) development. This IDE is based on Eclipse, so prompted an immediate download 🙂 For Python, I’ve chosen PyDev, which is a plug-in for Eclipse or Aptana Studio.
I’ve put both IDE’s on my dev usb, and will start messing around with the languages as soon as I got some spare time.
