Where are you in your journey with Ruby/Rails? (Introductions help us connect with those who may have similar interests, goals, skillsets)

I'm about 3 months into learning Ruby. It's really my first foray into a dynamically typed programming language (although I've hacked around in PHP and, many years ago, Pascal). Almost all of my learning and practice is happening via Rails and I've completed a handful of simple apps. I just completed Avi Flombaum's 5 week (32 hour) Ruby on Rails intensive. It's been a GREAT introduction to Rails 3 and I'm looking for opportunities to pair and/or help others get started with the Rails.

What are your goals with Ruby or Rails?

I'd like to become proficient enough to deploy fairly complex web applications using Rails. I'm also working hard to improve my JavaScript and front end skills (I have decent HTML and CSS knowledge).

When you are ready, please let us know how you would like to contribute? (This helps us know what resources are available)

I'm looking for opportunities to connect with others who are actively learning Ruby and/or help others get started with the Rails.

While we have regular meetings, when/if are you available for study groups, additional learning or teaching?(This helps subgroups form with in the main group)

I'm a consultant, so I'm generally flexible on meeting times. Generally, I prefer meeting in the morning or during work hours vs evenings or weekends.


Looking forward to contributing and continuing my own Ruby learning!
