I joined the Lab six months ago as a junior developer for my university ‘year in industry’ placement. One of the first things I was expected to learn was the Ruby language along with the Rails framework. Although I did have a little Python knowledge, I had never touched Ruby, or web frameworks, so I was starting from scratch in many ways. All the same, I managed to learn it in two weeks. Not to the point of “coding master”, but to where I was comfortably and independently writing code in Ruby and was happy to take on any challenges the team threw at me.
