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

I am a hardcore newbie. I started using linux just because someone told me if you are gonna program you better buy a mac ($$) or get linux, so I chose the latter. After that I set up rails after very long hours and I started working on my first app. I now have a working prototype but I want to learn how to build the UI.

What are your goals with Ruby or Rails?

My goal is to be at a point where if I come up with an idea I can then sit down and make a great looking prototype with a decent back end. I am not looking to become a super professional (although that'll be awesome) but I am more interested in being able to create great looking prototypes that work so that I can test my ideas.

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

I would like to contribute with my experiences as an entrepreneur. I hope that once I develop my rails skills further I will be able to contribute more to the group.

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 would love to participate in as many rails events as possible. $ and time are of course constraints but I will try my best to meet as often as possible.


Hi, I'm Juan and I am a Ruby newbie.. I have a few ideas that I want to develop on ruby on rails and I look forward to learn from and contribute to the group.
