Now that I got some time off work, I'd love to dig deeper into programming, are there any new trends around?

    The most recent one I'm aware of is the trend towards functional programming. Check out Haskell and give it a try.

    @Root well op does not have to run too far away from our darling Ruby, I find Ruby to be really good for functional programming.

    Btw I meant to ask you, do you prefer using bundler and rbenv(or a similar modular approach) to managing your Rails environments or are you more comfortable with RVM? i have been using rvm for a while and see a lot of recommendations for jumping into rbenv bundler camp

    @AleCx04 I use bundler and rvm. They play nicely.

    I never liked rbenv much.

    @gkaply532 I have no idea 🙁
    It's been years since I've looked at ruby tutorials

    Same old. Everyone one hates everything they're not using and loves everything they are using or they hate everything they are using and love everything they're not using. I think that's the tread these days. Just hate and love everything to be sure
