I have been studying Rails since March, 2014. It started because I transcribe videos for technical conferences and I got tired of not understanding what was going on. It has turned into an all-consuming obsession. Since then, I've been extremely fortunate enough to find some work tinkering with a real live project and intend to work my way up to the position of actual junior developer. It's absurdly ambitious, considering I have no technical background whatsoever, and I need all the help I can get.
