It happened. I don’t know when it happened. It could have been yesterday, it could have been last week, but I can finally say I’ve caught momentum learning rails.
When digging into a new skill outside of work, it’s hard. There always distraction at home. For me, it’s always a new game to play, movie to watch, or a tv series to get sucked into. “I worked hard all day, it’s time for play. I’ve earned it.” This is the mindset I often battle with, especially after a week of random production issues.
But for others, distractions comes from family and family needs. I’m grateful I really don’t have this yet in my life.
So, I’ve worked half way through the Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial Book. It’s been a great experience so far. I’ve already been adventuring away from the book and reading about other gems and trying them out on a small scale. You’ll start seeing some of it here soon.
All in all, this ride is getting faster.
