What is your background in programming?

Have been an web/app developer since the mid-nineties and nearly entirely dedicated to open source tech since 2000/01'ish. have dipped an dallied with many languages and architectures, but have primarily worked in LAMP(HP) stacks and JavaScript-based libraries for solutions development.

How did you end up wanting to learn Ruby?

Have had an interest since around 2001. Have played with (and Rails and Sinatra) as a hobbyist, and have worked with Ruby developers in cross-platform solutions development. I love Ruby's syntax and style and have been looking an opportunity to get stronger with it and hopefully to integrate Ruby into my arsenal.
