Project Ramon

A learning journey from a Ruby noob perspective

Introduction


Use the Force, my young Padawan! - Imgur

Greetings!

I am fortunate enough to have found airpair.com, a site that places experienced and gracious programmers in touch with people like me, a young padawan of the discipline.

I’ve been into web development programming for approximately 3 years now. And without a CS degree or many people to discuss concepts/problems with, I find the ability to learn from someone else to be just what I need to level up my development related skill-sets.

So, the plan to improve my understanding and execution with Ruby is to create 5 projects over a period of 10 weeks. You can view the initial airpair discussion I had with Jonathon  about this plan/project for a series of mentor sessions on youtube.

It should be noted that I am going to strip down the feature list after reading a book Jonathon @airpair suggested called Rework by @jasonfried and @dhhIt may be a good idea to check back to this article if you happen to be reading this a week or so before September 18th, 2013.

**Updated — check out my updated list here!

I intend to have a blast while learning from some great mentors and look forward to some hard work while completing 5 projects over 10 weeks. The goal of growing into  a proficient, sociable, yet student-like junior developer over time will be my trophy.

As far as blogging goes, I’m thinking that I should express in writing my understanding of the tools of the Ruby language, then go onto small projects I can find to both work through then write about.

This is all relatively new to me.

I started HTML/CSS back in August 2010 and PHP in October 2010. I made the switch to Ruby in April of 2012. So any pointers, corrections, criticisms, etc… to my code or even what/how I write will be well received, no worries. My objective being not to turn down any opportunity to improve.

Until next time,

Ramon
