Slack channel dedicated to ruby

Hello rubyists,

I joined slack newly and was dumbfounded to know all the communities of
different languages.
Even ruby on rails has one.I think we need a ruby-specific slack channel.

I was so wrong !

Hi my lovely rubyists,

Tried Ruby on rails today,I used to slam rails for over-shadowing ruby as a
language but I was so wrong. It was so naive of me to criticize rails
without trying it properly. After using it thoroughly, I can see why Rails
is synonymous with Ruby . Let's hope Rails gets better with every version.

Beautiful. Fast. Addictive.

Beautiful Ruby. Beautiful Rails

Yours sincerely,

Ruby without Rails?

Hi Rubyists!

I'm a beginner who is trying to learn Ruby. I have noticed how people
always link rails to ruby,I'm sure it's one hell of a framework and does
boosts Ruby's popularity.But I wanted to know if ruby can hold its own
against other languages if there is no rails.

Just a question from a newbie.

Yours Sincerely,

Surya Poojary.
