Re: [PhillyOnRails] Business Justification for Ruby

Hi --

hi all,

i've recently started a sys admin job where (a) the environment is tightly
controlled and (b) ruby is not an approved language.  i would like to go
thru the process of recommending ruby as a standard programming language so
i can use it for day to day scripting tasks.

has anyone in the phillyonrails community had to go thru something similar?
i can use the arguments of rapid development, clear syntax, and rich
standard library, but what other points could i use?  any and all help is
greatly appreciated (either on the list or off-line).

You might check out some recent books, especially any with "business" or "enterprise" in their names, so you could say, "As the author of 'Ruby blah blah Enterprise blah" says: ...."
