Today I read some Ruby (Programming Ruby-the “Pick Axe”) by the pool and it was very interesting. I haven’t done anything like that since my “bridge moment” many years ago. Back then I read some C++ documentation on the beach before deciding to go back to school in programming.
This time I am relearning or self teaching myself a new language (Ruby) but it still feels the same. Exciting, scary, overwhelming at times but hopeful due to the enormous opportunity available.
A lot has changed (for the better) in the world if software and the future looks bright and this time, due to Ruby, happy!
