As a developer I found myself with the struggling problem which type of Database was more convenient to use. Without revealing our company choice, I can say that I tried several ones.

In particular, I was attracted by the graph database like Neo4j, OrientDB and ArangoDB. I like in particular the last one, that provide a splendid documentation and, in comparison with the other three, in my humble opinion, a better performance.

The only problem that I had was the lack of a good maintained driver for, the programming language that I was, and I am, using. After a while of research, I understand that my hope to find something already built was useless. If I wanted to use efficiently ArangoDB with Ruby, I should work for myself and for all the ArangoDB/Ruby community.

I used a couple of weeks and at the end I create my first gem ArangoRB.

I was going to contact ArangoDB to ask some advice about it, but they were faster  and they e-mail me to thanks for this new driver.

At the moment, I proud to say that ArangoRB is the main driver for ArangoDB. A little satisfaction for my first experience in the open-source programming world.
