Hi there,
I am a newish programmer.  And new to the Ranch.  Just completed a bootcamp that started with a month of Java, then added on other stuff.  No Ruby, but I am curious about it.   When learning Ruby, at what point would you suggest adding Rails to the mix?  Does one need to get a solid foundation in Ruby, or is it advisable to mix the two earlier in the process?
Thanks!

Hi Sam —

If you are a Rails programmer, then you are (or purport to be :-) ) a Ruby programmer. Rails allows you to get something up and running very quickly, but if you try to develop a Rails application seriously without studying Ruby, you’ll hit the glass ceiling quickly and get frustrated.
