2 months into my Launch School curriculum and I’m just starting to ‘get’ Ruby. It’s tough at age 40 to suddenly acquire a new language, let alone a programming language. It is taking me longer than I thought, but at least it’s starting to ‘click’. Some advice? Don’t do what I did.

I zipped through the lessons, because I was in a mad rush to prepare for the big assessment.

Now, I have to hire a private tutor. Even though I’m on lesson 6, I still don’t understand how to code ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.” back in Lesson 2. Many LS colleagues have posted their codes for review on our forum, but I can’t even get a working code worth posting! So that’s where I’m at. In 3 days, I meet online with my very expensive private Ruby tutor, and hoping for the best! I want to thank the LS community for offering to help. May I add — what an outstanding community! I’m so proud to be part of this fantastic group :)
