I would like to get really involved in the Ruby community here in Utah and abroad. Hopefully, by attending these meetups I can network with those experienced with the language and familiar with the industry and it's opportunities for entry and progression.
Aside from going through Codecademy courses and formulas/SQL with Microsoft Excel and Access, not much. I see this as an opportunity to learn more and progress those currently underdeveloped skills.
Roughly 2 years. Not a lot of time, but I like to think that my passion for it outweighs my overall background.
I have worked in the Insurance Brokerage/Medical industry ever since I could consider myself a working professional. I build computers as a hobby. I'm looking to get into Ruby programming as another avenue for a career.
I love it so far! I haven't been to any URUG meetings outside of DRUG, but I definitely plan to attend the monthly meetings.
