Get help with Rails
Having trouble getting started with Rails? Need a little extra help with that latest Rails feature? Find yourself a mentor here and meet up with them virtually or physically.
Then use what you've learned to help others.
Mentoring someone is extremely rewarding, and we only ask for a few hours of your time. If you know one of the topics well enough that you could teach it to someone else, get involved today.

I’ve been using Rails since 1.6 or thereabouts. It’s taught me a lot about design, productivity, programming, deployment and (surprise, surprise) myself!
The community got me in. The framework got me hooked!
I’m in a rut right now. I’ve reached a point where I’ll only be able to get better at doing Rails by engaging with people at vastly different levels than I am. In a George Leonard sort of way, I’m on the path to “mastery” with Rails.
There are no mentorship pins over any of the continent of Africa. I’m here to change that :)
