Ruby Code & Style is a peer-reviewed, online journal for the Ruby community. We are looking for authors, and invite you to submit a query or draft.
Timeliness and relevance to the current state of Ruby's evolution is the currency by which we'll measure the value of material submitted for publication in our magazine. We will do our best to keep the articles valuable in terms of this currency by carefully choosing topics which are attracting the attention of the software developers, architects, integrators, managers covering all aspects of Information Technology. Although the zine is slanted towards intermediate to advanced Ruby programmers, we will welcome tutorials which help Rubyists to get started in a specific domain of software development. Our emphasis will be on code supplemented, in-depth articles revealing various facets of Ruby. But we will not be limited by that. We also likely publish interviews, philosophical essays, quizzes, and translations (especially from our Japanese counterparts). We may also publish book-reviews, so long as they are related to Ruby and are relevant to our target audience: the informed Rubyist.
Keep in mind that Ruby Code & Style is peer-reviewed, so you may wish to show your article to a few of your closest Ruby friends before submitting it to our review process. In addition, remember you needn't limit yourself by what is typically presented on the printed page, as these articles will be published online on the World Wide Web.
