🎈 Blog turns one year!
One year ago, on March 23 I rolled out a first article to this blog, and, looking back, it was a damn good decision! In this short post I’ll share some results and stats.
During the year I published 12 posts: 8 about Rails, 2 about Haskell, 1 about databaseas and 1 essay about architecture. Overall there were 26 300 unique visitors. Thanks for the attention 🙂
🥇 Why Ruby has symbols
A post about Ruby internals, rolled out in April, which got most attention: about 11 000 unique visitors spending 5 minutes 30 seconds on the page! Moreover, it was translated to Japaneese, recognized as one of most popular posts in RubyWeekly and reached #4 on Hackernews.
🥈 Understading why attr_accessor in Ruby is faster than a regular method
Another post on how Ruby works, which was rolled out in June. This one got 3 500 unique visitors with 4 minutes 45 seconds on the page.
🥉 How to make Ruby interpreter run program written in a natural language
A weird post about metaprogramming, that was visited by 2 300 unique users, and it took them 3 minutes 22 seconds in average to dig into it.
