    MRS 101: Taylor Jones

    My Ruby Story this week welcomes Taylor Jones, Support Engineer at Heroku. Charles asks Taylor how he ended up at Heroku. Taylor shares his journey after majoring in Computer Science at Auburn University. Taylor had a lot of downtime in his first job so he started learning Rails online. Then after he graduated he was able to get more chances working full time with Ruby. He then started speaking at conferences such as RailsConf. Charles and Taylor talk about how working at a place you really want to is not a pie in the sky but actually is doable if you position yourself correctly. For example Taylor really wanted to work at Heroku and was friends with the people at Heroku. When there was an opening his friends contacted him and Taylor was able to find a job at Heroku. Charles wonders what drew Taylor to programming and Taylor talks about how he was introduced to developing through video games. Taylor also talks about the concept " if you start out with Ruby you stick with Ruby" and how this was true for him. Finally Charles wants to know what Taylor's life is like outside of work. Taylor talks about what he does is in his free time which is playing guitars and hanging out with his family and his toddler.

    MRS 100: The Origin and Impact of My Ruby Story

    MRS 100: The Origin and Impact of My Ruby Story

    My Ruby Story celebrates its 100th episode. To commemorate the 100th episode host Charles Max Wood talks about how My Ruby Story podcast started and how it progressed. My Ruby Story started off as a spin-off of Ruby Rogues. Acting upon advice from a business coach he was working with at the time, Charles misunderstood her suggestion to double on Ruby Rogues and instead proceeded to create a podcast similar to Ruby Rogues. Over the years, the show proceeded to inspire many developers who are just starting out and the show developed a fan base of its own. Over the years, My Ruby Story has helped people get better jobs, shaped their careers. For those who have been positively affected, Charles requests them to send him an email sharing how My Ruby Story or any other Devchat.tv podcast. If you have any questions or are struggling with how to get a better job, how to talk to your boss, or what steps to take to better your developer career, Charles schedule a call at Schedule a 15 Minute Call with Charles Max Wood.
