I've been working with Ruby (and Rails) for almost 14 years. A few old folks might remember me from http://www.robbyonrails.com/ (and some know me from creating @ohmyzsh).
During the week, I run Planet Argon... we help companies who have already made a deep investment into Ruby on Rails with ongoing support/upgrades/maintenance. https://www.planetargon.com/
p.s. you may have seen this photo I took, too. (Canada on Rails, April 2006)
