#001 - feb 12th 2013


The Green Ruby News was at the beginning an internal letter I was publishing every week in Code Green IT company. But it became obvious that this could and should be shared outside our walls, so here is it. Green Ruby Newsletter goes public !

The purpose of this letter is to spread the information we gathered during the week, about ruby, rails, javascript, web development, or internet in general. I hope you can find any interest in that.
