@adamlombard what language(s) have you been using?
@phaedryx I maintain and develop a legacy Windows app built in a development suite called OpenInsight. It uses a proprietary language called BASIC+. Not super common stuff. 😂
I've recently started doing more JS and PHP, but I'm focusing on Ruby for some upcoming projects.
Are you mainly a Ruby dev? Any tips on good learning resources?
@adamlombard Yeah, I've been doing Ruby for about a dozen years or so. I like http://rubykoans.com/ for a nice overview of how the language works. If you like to work problems to learn: https://exercism.io/. I have heard great things about this book: https://www.railstutorial.org/book. This has gotten rave reviews too: https://www.poodr.com/
@phaedryx Thanks for the resources! I actually started POODR last week, and yes -- it's fantastic so far.
@adamlombard if you're able, I'd encourage you to make it to RubyConf in Los Angeles in mid-November. That's a great way to get connected to the wide-variety of stuff happening in the Ruby community.
@plainprogrammer Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into it.
