How I got into Ruby
I was working for a company that made static analysis and testing tools for Java in the 00s. We needed a server up and running quickly and chose Rails for the job. Worked in Java & C# for several years after that but switched to Ruby full time about 6 years ago.
I work on Rails full time at work. Kicking the tyres of Rubymotion for a hobby project.

Moving back to the old country soon and dreaming of my sweet new home office setup with a Herman Miller Aeron hair and fancy new monitor.
