Student, Project #10
Bio: I'm a 17 years old student from Norway who loves to hack around with Ruby and has a part-time job in Scandinavian Design Group.
My first encounter with Ruby was, unsurpisingly, Rails. While I certainly liked the principles of Rails, I didn't knew the Ruby language at that time. Instead of actually learning Ruby, I rather started looking for Rails-clones in PHP. I must have tried them all, but there was always *something* that didn't seem quite right with them.
A few months later I discovered _why's interactive Try Ruby! and from that moment I realised what all of those clones lacked: Ruby. I also realized that Ruby was way more interesting than Rails.
