I had an awesome time listening to Mark Richardson teach about the basics of Ruby and how to get started.
Mark finished classes with me at ACLTC this past December 2014. He did a great job getting eager new Rubyists started making their very first app.I was able to assist him with people that struggled a little getting the syntax right which gave me kind of the bug to want to teach and help others as well.
Seems the more you give of your time and efforts to others the more you want to. New developers are so eager and thankful when someone gives them the empowerment to succeed.It's very rewarding!
