If I'm being honest, I had a hard time choosing a main language. I have dabbled in different languages before, such as C++ and Java, but they never really clicked with me. I felt I was spending too much time worrying about memory leaks or escaped semi-colons when I should be actually coding. To cut a long story short, ruby is actually my birthstone so I decided to try Ruby out. I found it's syntax easy to remember and it is phenomenally easy to read.
As an ever curious little bunny, I enjoy dipping my finger into as many (technology-based) pies as possible. With software developing in Ruby and wanting to go more into web development, Rails seemed the natural choice. I find making websites in Rails much more enjoyable than any other method.
Well, for starters, this site! I first made it as a little project and it grew and grew. It uses only a handful of gems. The Twitter Bootstrap Rails gem takes care of the theme, Postmarkdown allows me to blog in Markdown, and soon I will incorporate CodeRay for beautiful syntax highlighting.
