Topic: Just introducing myself...
I'm new here and like the title says I'd like to introduce myself to the community
I'm a C#/ASP.NET developer who is quickly becoming interested in Ruby/RoR and might be looking to make a full transition at some point (although not for a while as my day job is developing ASP.NET stuff). I've bought the book "Agile Web Development with Rails" and I'm starting to work through it for the second time around.
The only problem I run into seems to be a lack of any real "ideas" that I could turn into a RoR app in order to learn more of how things work; I can only learn so much by reading the book.. it feels like I'm not learning anything but just typing what I see, and then I see all of these advanced RoR applications online and feel as though I'm not going to be able to grasp it. I've never been very creative as far as coming up with ideas--hopefully this won't be too much of a problem, and with luck I can start to come up with some as I become more involved in the RoR community.
I've actually started to chronicle my journey with a brand new website/blog: http://www.rubykoolaid.com (I've only just started it, so it's a bit bare right now). I look forward to participating a bit more on the forums and groups for RoR in the future; I'm really starting to enjoy the language, the community and the framework.
