How I got into Ruby:
I was a Java developer for about 8 years (1997-2005) and was about to start a new project. Weekend before, my biz partner and I attended a No Fluff, Just Stuff Java Symposium. Among the conference speakers was Dave Thomas, who’d been Ruby evangelizing for a couple years. But at THIS conference, the hallway track was full of nothing but talk of this cool new framework called Rails (v0.13). My biz partner and I decided to blow a couple weeks off the top of our project schedule and try out Rails. In two weeks, we’d made so much progress, that we never looked back.
