Coming from a pure sysadmin environment and profession, I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I've successfully managed to use a ruby library properly instead if shelling out to use it's cli interface, with optparse, proper rake task in the lib folders and proper exit code handling.

It's never too late to learn how to program in any language for your personal project.

    Ruby is a great bridge language. Easy to read, easy to get started. I would even say it should replace python in educational settings.

    Shame it gets shit on so much...
