I love Ruby and have been using it professionally for more than 10 years. I also have been spending time on how to write a easy to read and easy to extend Ruby code. I am new to mentoring and a non-native English speaker. Please excuse my brevity. If my feedback to you is rude, first I am sorry and second it was not my intention. Please do reach out to me, it gives me an opportunity to learn through feedback for mentoring.
I'm working with a Ruby based Ruby backend legacy System. I found it a powerful language but dangerous at the same time, so a good discipline is key for working with it. I'll try to share some of my experience here.
I started working with Ruby 6 years ago and immediately fell in <3 with its elegance and expressiveness. However, one of the things that (still) appeals to me the most is the incredibly savvy, creative and welcoming community behind it. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it via this amazing project!
I first began programming with Python, but once I tried Ruby I never let go. Ruby has a flexible, elegant syntax, and the community is embracing and amazing. It's the community, for me, that makes me a proud Rubyist.
Ruby has been my go-to language for the past 6 years. I love how readable and intuitive it is. I'm thankful for the opportunity to help others on their journey in any way I can and I'm hoping to become a better mentor in the process :)
I love Ruby for its simplicity and readability. I have been using it professionally for more than 3 years. I love mentoring ruby because it giving me ability to learn something new.
I started writing Ruby 4 years ago when I co-founded Workplace Arcade. I quickly fell in love with the language and have been using it ever since. I'm very passionate about mentoring and co-organize a local ruby meetup.
Ruby is the most natural language I've ever learn. Its object-oriented nature can help you understand the OO concept. I've been using Ruby in my career for five years both in my workplace and opensource projects.
What can I say? I love Ruby. And I believe it is one of the best languages for anyone to start out with. The syntax is beautiful, and you'll have a lot of support from the community (and me). I've been using Ruby for about 4 years now, and it is one of the reasons I still enjoy coding in my spare time.
I'm a developer for 4 years and the last year I have been working with Ruby. Exercism is a great help to get over the C and C++ habits and move to the Ruby way of thinking. Likewise, it makes me so happy to be able to give back to this community as a mentor!
I'm a remote developer based in Manchester. Ruby is my first love but increasingly I'm focussing on Elixir. The open source community means a great deal to me and I attend (and occasionally speak at) various technical conferences.
I love Ruby for its expressiveness, readability and the awesome community. I learnt a lot of good practices in Ruby while solving exercises on exercism and later started using it to mentor people in my workplace. Now I am really excited to do it on a wider scale!
When I started to be bored by Java some 10+ years ago I discovered Ruby and it has been my go to language for any personal projects since then. I also have had the fortune to work with it professionally a couple of times.
(He/him pronouns). I've been a Ruby developer for a couple of years (since 2016ish), and I've been helped along immensely by friends and the community--I'm looking forward to paying that back! When I'm not working with code, I'm probably playing or making tabletop RPGs.
An enthusiastic programmer who enjoys to explore various aspects of the computer industry. Worked on areas ranging from ASIC & FPGA based hardware design to Software Development in softwares like ruby, C, C++, perl,scheme, common-lisp and rust.
I'm a lapsed mechanical engineer and robotocist turned software developer, deeply in love with Ruby (although Elixir is pretty great too). Currently the Application Development Manager @ Yale University.
Ruby launched my software development career, and I love its simple syntax and minimal amount of concepts. The Ruby community has also taught me so much that I can bring to whatever language I am using.
I love Ruby because it delivers on its promise: programmer happiness. As a programmer, I'm happy when my code is intention revealing, easy to reason about and easy to change. I have used Ruby to build 4 startups over 12 years and I'm not done yet.
I've been working in IT for 20+ years, and Ruby is the first language I've found that I consider truly elegant. I've learned over that time that everyone is constantly learning - I hope we can learn together!
Hi, there! I've been working with Ruby since 2015 and am a big fan of the community and mentorship. My previous career was in Music/Education and I find those skills have helped me be a better teammate and teacher. I look forward to working with you!
I got introduced to Ruby through writing Cucumber tests for a web app. I got addicted to using ruby as I wrote it more and more - it's truly a fun language to write. I use it both for OSS projects and for tooling at work.
After working with Ruby for a couple of years, I love it. I also enjoy teaching and mentoring others, plus it's a great way to refresh knowledge.
Learning Ruby was the turning point for me as a developer. Not only is Ruby a beautiful and extremely productive language, but I can say with certainty that if you are a beginner or intermediate developer that learning Ruby will significantly improve your code and workflow in all languages.
Mohnish is a programmer who cares about - programming as a craft, mentorship, diversity, inclusiveness and empathy. Away from work, he enjoys contributing to open source, blogging, and has even organized Ruby user group meetups in the past. He's also learning more of Elixir whenever he gets an opportunity.
I've been working with Ruby for several years as a developer, architect and team leader. It's my favorite language, it's very beautiful and simple. I's really was created to 'Make programmers happy' as Matz said.
Ruby caught my attention due to its idiomatic constructs and powerful metaprogramming capabilities. I've been working with ruby for half a decade and am trully in love with how elegant the code is. I would very much like to evangelize and enfuse in others this passion for ruby.
I love Ruby for its beauty and consistency. I've been happily working with it for 10+ years and don't see myself stopping any time soon. Mentoring has been a great way to help the community while reinforcing my skills and knowledge in programming.
I'm a recent career changer, having left NHS Accountancy for a coding bootcamp. I'm now in my first year of a Full Stack Developer role, working predominantly with Rails. I've been helped by exercism.io and want to do my bit to keep the Ruby learning track flowing.
Working as ruby on rail(RoR)s last 4 years (I recommend to have a look at RoR when learning Ruby). I have total 8+ years in software development. I always believe sharing knowledge is a beautiful concept, exercism is perfect place to learn and share your knowledge.
I want to work as a ruby developer because Ruby taught me how intersting programing is. I started to study Ruby 6 months ago but I've learned a lot of things from mentor and exercise in Exercism. I want to be like them to support people like me
I've worked with Ruby for a long time now and absolutely love how natural it feels to write and how testable it is. While it wasn't my first language and while there's lots of other great platforms out there, working in Ruby has always felt like "home" to me. I'm delighted to help more people find that joy!
Ruby was the first programming language I used to build web applications so it has deep emotional roots on my mind. Right now I'm part of a coding bootcamp as an Instructor and Curriculum developer. Education is one of my major interests and I think becoming a mentor in Exercism will help to strengthen my knowledge and help others along the way.
