Finally I've taken my first paid plunge into learning Ruby language. For the next 7 weeks I'll be totally immersed in coding Ruby under the guidance of Satish Talim.
Even thought I'm using Ruby professionally, I'm far away from even being called an intermediate developer in it. It all started as helping out testers once in a while and soon I fell in love with the language. In order to be more able, I've been through Codecademy Ruby track which gave me nice jumpstart to what I was doing at work. I languished at various other sites and tutorials before I decided it's better to take some professional help and shell out some moolah.
I had been reading Ruby Learning blog for some time now and was waiting for their next batch to start. I was still in dilemma between above and Pragmatic Studio. Eventually, it all boiled down to cost of course and since I could afford this without reiterating my monthly budget, it was a clear winner.
I see myself as a better Ruby Developer and a step closer to get that Rails Developer job after this course. Lets hope for the best.
