Do you think that a webdesigner/webmaster today has to learn Ruby, even if he is using webflow?
If yes or no, can you please explain why?
Thank you by advance for your help & interest.
To my understanding Ruby is another level of coding.
Ruby is made to build applications, not web sites. Even serious applications. Sites with big user systems, projects etc. Think Redmine (a collborative dev/bug tracker), or a big site to sell and exchange cars, or an accounting website… Sites that aren’t just website but big serious applications.
If you build sites with Webflow and host them on Webflow, Ruby can’t do anything for them, as you need Ruby to be installed on a server to run a site programmed in Ruby.
You could develop a great Ruby site, and design the front end with Webflow, but at a moment you’d have to leave Webflow and integrate the front end in your bigger site, hosted elsewhere.
No, Ruby is not the game of a designer or webmaster. Ruby is the game of a developer.
Thank you for sharing your point of vue, @vincent
What @vincent said is all very true, that being said - if you work a lot with developers - I don’t think it will hurt you to know what’s going on, I think it makes you think more modular about your design. but again it really depends on the type of design work you do.
Hope this helps!
Thank you very much for this answer, @SidneyOttelohe
Hey @AntonioBalderas thanks for your answer !
Yes I was thinking of Mackenzie Child when I asked this question
And yes, maybe one day I’ll learn angular too
Step by step, but I think I will try Ruby first.
Thank you all for your help !
