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.
