In other news, we've now hit 500 users on ruby.social!

This is great news, but puts us on a higher tier of costs in our hosting, so since some folk have asked about it... if you'd like to contribute to the running costs, you can now do so via Patreon:

patreon.com/rubysocial

This is absolutely not required, and getting more Rubyists to join is still the best thing you can do to help, but if you'd like to also throw some gold in the chest, now you can 😄

Hey folks! Welcome to ruby.social! 🎉

I'm hoping this will become a good, friendly community for Ruby-folks to chat and discover new friends. But for that to happen, you need to sign up!

Lovely talk by @tekin about the benefits of investing time in keeping a clean and useful history, particularly the tips at the end.

I am struggling to become a Ruby, JS developer later in life. It's been harder than I thought to rearrange my life to make room for this change. Any one out there have any tips? I'd love to find a solid mentor.

Don't worry @mperham, :sidekiq: will stay 😄

(although you could be extra nice by becoming a super supporting anyway 😉 )

The Ruby.social Patreon now has a couple of benefits available for supporters:

Super supporters can now nominate a custom emoji which will be added to the instance for their (any anyone else's) use! :ruby:

Companies/bigger organisations can now also show their support of Ruby.social with a logo and link from the homepage.

Did you know that communitywiki.org/trunk exists?

It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.

Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.

If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.

Hi everyone!
I'm a freelance ror/js developer living in the mountains of Colorado.

After living in Denver for years, my biggest struggle is keeping in touch with other developers.

I'm hoping to make some connections here.

Anyone working on a project where they'd like to pair?

A quick instance update :ruby: :mastodon:

As of now, we've blown way past the 500 users from a week ago, and are now at 673 Ruby-friendly folk. Welcome!

We also have 8 supremely-generous people/organisations contributing to the Patreon, which is now pretty close to covering the hosting costs. Update about that here: patreon.com/posts/thank-you-21
