Brandon, nice job. I'm trying to teach Ruby to a friend of mine and would
Right now the audience that I'm aware of is:

- Veteran Administrators
- Novice Developers
- Never Programmed in their lives
- High School students
- Middle School student

So at this point I have a wide range I'll have to cover. I won't get into
advanced tricks or concepts for a while, which will most definitely set off
some of the more experienced Devs and Admins, but will cater to those who
haven't even seen code. My goal in this is to start a new center for Ruby
in the Joplin area before I most likely leave in December.

In an area where RPG, COBOL, and .NET are by and far the dominate
languages, I feel like some one needs to spread the good word, and that
word is Ruby.

I'm looking into starting this a week from this Saturday, and most likely
casting in the afternoon.
