Engine Yard Cloud Out Loud S01E03: Sarah Allen

Ruby t-shirt that says Ruby makes me happy

This week we interview Sarah Allen of Blazing Cloud. Matt Reider, the Director of Professional Services and Training at Engine Yard, talks with Sarah about why Ruby makes people happy. They discuss the Ruby ecosystem and various methods of teaching people who are new to Ruby / Rails (such as teaching them about gems first).

Matt asked me to edit his mishaps, but I conveniently ignored his request =).

Here is a list of a few places you can go to explore and become a part of the amazing Ruby / Rails ecosystem that Sarah talks about:
