Jeff Savin December 18, 2010 at 11:44 am

Ruby has literally transformed my career from dull, dreary, and even mundane programming, to a satisfying mixture of developing functional pieces of art. :) What’s more, I owe my humble beginnings all to Satish and the RubyLearning crew, (especially Satoshi, Victor and Michael). Thanks, thanks thanks. :) Happy Holidays.


Satish Talim December 18, 2010 at 11:49 am

Thanks to you Jeff for your invaluable inputs during the various Ruby challenges for newbies.


Nithin Bekal December 18, 2010 at 10:07 pm

Thank you Satish for giving us RubyLearning. I’ve had an awesome year in 2010 learning Ruby and related technologies here. And thank you RubyLearning mentors for helping so many of us learn Ruby better. Hoping to see more great courses in 2011. :)

I want to thank the guest bloggers on the RubyLearning blog. We’ve read some really great quality blog posts from them recently.

Thank you for having created this awesome community, and thank you for such awesome courses.


IMHOTEP December 19, 2010 at 8:33 am

The thing about your site I really like is this – it’s one of the few places where coding is an art form / fun again and not some painful tech. slavery.

I looked at all the other online classes nd nobody comes close! Happy coding.

BTW how do you code iPhone with Ruby?


Satish Talim December 19, 2010 at 8:45 am

You can use Rhomobile’s Rhodes for building apps for iPhone.


Carlo Pecchia December 20, 2010 at 3:26 pm
