My name is Joe Norton, and I am starting this website because I believe the best way to learn is to teach. I have been tinkering with Ruby for a few years now, and hope to one day become an expert in programming with Ruby. Here I will share what worked for me, what didn’t work. I want to make it easier for the next guy, because it seems like everyone is talking about Ruby on Rails but there is so much more to Ruby than just working with Rails. Right now, I am trying to learn about Ruby and how I can use Ruby to make me a more efficient computer user.
Basically my plan is to work hard to advance as a programmer, and I will be documenting my paradigm shifts, projects, and tips/tricks along the way here on this blog. I invite you to join me as we progress together from Beginners to Expert Ruby Developers. I want to master the Ruby language so that I can use it to create software and dynamic websites.
You might be saying — if you’re a beginner yourself then what makes you a good a person to learn from?
While I am not perfect, that doesn’t mean I have nothing to teach. Actually, I think it makes for an awful lot of insight I can provide to beginners. If I share what I did to overcome issues, and how I went about solving problems then maybe that can make learning easier for someone else. I’ve only just begun my journey of learning to craft software, and even so I already have a number of useful scripts I am quite fond of. I figure this code can be useful for more than just my own, and since I’m not planning on selling my practice projects really — I don’t see any reason in not giving out the code so that others can learn from it or even just to use the scripts.
