I started working as a Rails developer 4 years ago, after almost 10 years off-break from coding. I learned Ruby and Ruby on Rails by doing some tutorials and building small projects. When I got my first job offer I was a little scared as I was not familiar with large, existing codebases. All I knew were my little pet projects.
If you are in the same spot as I was a few years ago, or you’re just curious how others do this. Here is the list of the top 10 most popular Ruby on Rails repositories on GitHub.
