I am somewhat new to Ruby, but am very interested in learning. I am familiar with vb.net, C#, and Java but it seems like web projects are highly RoR friendly/oriented. I would really love to get involved with a RL project.
We are San Diego's Ruby community. If you're interested in Ruby or Ruby on Rails, this is the group for you.
We kick off our monthly meetings with two talks given by SD Ruby members.
We also provide short four to five week-long introductory classes taught by experienced Ruby developers in the SD Ruby group. Signup is required and there's a nominal fee for each class (which is used to purchase food and drink for students).
