Help with ruby in chicago area

I want to sit down with someone in chicago area and help me get going
with ruby. Help me to configure IRB and show me how to create a good
debugging environment. I want to work with Mechanize, but I can’t see
what is happening behind the scenes.

We could meet at a Panera, or anywhere else, and I am willing to pay
you for your time. I live in the West Suburbs of Chicago, Downer’s

Thank you,
