I'm a totally language fanatic, so I'm always happy to talk about
differences in programming languages.  I'm currently moving on from my love
affair with Scala to flirting with Go.  As for Ruby on Rails, although I
like Python a bit more than Ruby, I prefer to use Ruby on Rails when I'm
doing web development.
