Hi guys. Congrats for this book.

I have recently started learning ruby and RoR. For a java developer this is a little strange but the language is beautiful and powerful.

How long do you think it takes to become proficient in ruby?

Regards,

Cristian.

It largely depends on how much time you invest in it!

I know many people who have written significantly used open source libraries a mere 4-6 months after they started Ruby, but they were skilled programmers beforehand and spent a good deal of time working with Ruby. Of course, to be an expert, they say it takes 10,000 hours of practice, so who knows?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
