Always wanted to learn how to program but never applied myself. Currently have a lot of time and want to learn the basics of ruby then jump into rails. Very serious about this for the next couple of weeks, will probably spend 4-8 hours a day writing programs, reading, in ruby IRC, etc. Would like to find someone who is in a similar situation and eager to learn or would be willing to help out when road blocks popup. My end goal is to apply to a program like AppAcademy.io PM me or leave questions for others to see.
Edit: My background thus far has been completion of Ruby at Codecademy, written two small programs, and just started RubyMonk
