I recently finished reading the 2nd edition of the PickAxe. I thought it
would be a good approach to get a overview of the language before even
beginning to play around with it much.
I came to this mailing list in search of a community.
I am primarily a web developer, so obviously Rails interests me. However,
since my background is in ColdFusion and I still have room to develop there,
I'm not sure if I want to start playing with Rails as my first steps in
Ruby. So, I'm wondering what kind of ideas and suggestions you guys have.
Perhaps there are some common programming tasks that one would benefit to
learn in any language. Maybe you're doing some great non-web stuff with
Ruby: I'd like to know about it.
But speaking of Rails, how easy is it to find some Rails-supported hosting
Hmm, this message feels rather scatterbrained. I guess I'm just looking for
a little guidance from the community. How did you get into Ruby? Etc.
Okay, that is all. Thanks for bearing with me.
