Softies on Rails – Ruby on Rails for .NET Developers

Hi there! As you've probably noticed, we're busy doing other stuff and have long stopped writing new articles here at Softies on Rails. However, we've provided a handy archive below, in case you want proof of our long history of having no clue what we're doing.

You can also check out the book we wrote back in 2008. It's out of print now, but you can find it around the interwebs, if you look hard enough.

Where are they now?

Jeff Cohen (follow on Twitter) is Lead Instructor at Code Academy, a beginner-focused, 11-week web development training program based in Chicago.
