My JS Story Joe Fiorini
Off an Early Start
Joe has always been interested in computers. Growing up, he learned to copy-paste codes from basic help examples. It was not until high school that he learned to build a software.
He had a teacher who taught them about programming. Their class built a search engine, which the school eventually used for students and classroom schedules.
As he continued learning, Joe became frustrated with the whole Microsoft development environment. He wanted something that he could work on from scratch. That's when Ruby on Rails started becoming popular.
Joe started a user group in Cleveland when he started on Ruby. He remembers speaking about Rails in their first meeting. The night before the event, he updated his gems.
