We quickly mention a bunch of results of WhyDay, including releases of Shoes, Hackety Hack, Camping, Kext, and code golf in Ruby, as well as our standard fare of interesting projects like Rid, MongoMatic, a blog post on writing your own daemons in Ruby, an IRC bot framework, Swimlanes (a git visualization tool from Jim Weirich), and of course, the Ruby 1.9.2 release.

Hackety Hack 1.0-pre Jump to Story

Yet another project started by Why has new life on WhyDay. Hackety Hack is a project started to help people learn to program. It has a bunch of code that teaches concepts, all built on top of the new release of Shoes, as well as a website with forums where people can discuss, mentor, and learn.

In addition to the project link, we'd like to point out this post by the new maintainer. This is a perfect example of Why the Lucky Stiff, even in his absence, mentoring the Ruby community
