20+ Rubyists to Follow on Quora

by Satish Talim on January 12, 2011

What’s Quora?

Quora

Quora is a continually improving collection of questions and answers created, edited, and organized by everyone who uses it. The most important thing is to have each question page become the best possible resource for someone who wants to know about the question.”

Robert Scoble, in his article “Is Quora the biggest blogging innovation in 10 years?” says -

I’ve now been blogging for 10 years. Looking back we haven’t seen all that much innovation for bloggers. You have a box. You type in it. Put an image into it. And hit publish. That’s much the same as the tools I had 10 years ago.

But now comes Quora.

I’m really loving it. I have a hard time explaining why. I’m not the only one, either.

Who’s a Rubyist?

A Rubyist is associated with or uses the Ruby programming language (this includes JRuby, Ruby on Rails, Rhodes, Shoes, Sinatra among others).

How does this site compares to StackOverflow?
That is my usual hangout for programming questions. Do you guys know that site?
I do not see many Rubyists there, so maybe I will check out Quora.
Can somebody give me a invite?
