Had you asked me “What’s Ruby?” no more than five months ago, I’d have responded with “a gem.” Which is still so accurate. I started learning how to code in Ruby five months ago and, while I still have so much more to learn, I have grown to be so comfortable in this remarkably friendly language. One of my first “big” solo Ruby projects was to develop a simple CLI (Command Line Interface) that would fetch some data and present it to a user.

You, too, can make the terminal say what every beginning programmer (myself included) made it say!
