You tried the tutorials, but were frustrated without feedback
Blink... Blink... Blink... The cursor stares at you, waiting for you to do something. Anything. You've followed the online tutorials, you've tried try-ruby, and you've searched stack-overflow, but now that it's time
for you to take the next steps, you don't know how to get started. You start to feel alone and frustrated.
You know Ruby is awesome, happy, and powerful.
Imagine being able to look at Ruby code and not only understand what it's doing, but being able to improve upon it. Imagine confidently submitting pull-requests to your favorite projects, and happily creating software that's powerful, easy to understand, and maintainable. And, imagine being paid very well to create Ruby for a living, enjoying every minute that you code.
You can learn Ruby -- with the right practice and encouragement
You'll learn the language, frameworks, tools, and world-views that make Ruby unique. With better Ruby, you'll understand the 'magic' that others take for granted with Rails, and have the ability to improve projects, and be the most valuable developer on a team.
