Some clarification re “GitHub moving off Ruby/Rails” FUD (in case you’ve seen it somewhere and freaked out a bit) https://www.reddit.com/r/ruby/comments/9clta4/github_moves_off_the_rails_as_microsoft_closes_in/e5czvxl/
Hi! I've been in the Ruby community since '08 or so. It's my go-to language largely because the community is great and the available libraries are solid.
I've been one of the leaders of the Portland Ruby Brigade for 5+ years, though other people tend to do the hard work.
I've spoken at local, regional and national Ruby conferences, including RubyConf on the (now defunct 😢 Ruby implementation MagLev) though it's been a few years.
I'd love to connect w/more Rubyists, say hi!
@fjfish I too love reading hard-copies over soft-copies. What books did you buy btw? I got hold of 3 books related to patterns recently but haven't had chance to go over them. The books that I got were: Design patterns(by the gangs of four), Design patters in Ruby, and The Rails 5 way.
Full Stack RoR dev.
