What is your experience with Ruby?

Started studying Ruby on Rails in Nov '2011 because a friend needed someone with a design background to help build the front end of an app. Now I am focused on understanding RoR well enough to design, test and manage the Views and Assets of RoR projects. I love Sass and focusing on CSS only design with font icons, etc. and mobile first layouts. I am also really interested in interactive information visualization. Charts don't have to suck!

Do you use Ruby professionally or as a hobby?

Spare time to be the front end designer/developer on personally interesting projects


My job is to help startups with business planning, strategy, marketing, and sales. But my background is in 3D animation, simulation, info Viz, design, and programming. I also volunteer to run Indy Startup Weekends to help launch new IT startups.
