if you've ever wanted to learn ruby on rails in Israel, but didn't know how to start on your own, I think you'd find this very interesting! (no, I am not teaching it. someone with much more experience than me is)
Web Development in Ruby on Rails
Course Number 4564 – 40 Hours
This is an introductory course to Ruby on Rails, a popular, open-source framework for developing Web applications. Developers (and the organizations for which they work) love Rails, because it allows them to create high-quality applications quickly and reliably. Both Ruby andRails embrace object-oriented programming to a very large degree, also embracing (and...
I wrote a long and difficult blog post on my findings, 6 months after switching full time to Ruby development, about the Ruby community and its differences from the .NET community, and how Microsoft helps make those differences even bigger.
I think every .NET developer should read about these experiences.
Next week the Ruby Underground meeting is actually taking place in Microsoft in Herzliya.
The topics of the meeting will be about Sinatra, and a glimpse of one developer's development environment and what tools they use on a daily basis.
It is totally free to join, and if you're interested in Ruby at all, this is a warm and welcoming group of people who'd love to help you learn!

Ralf has a nice tidbit about how .NET 2.0 Partial Classes can help you with writing unit tests for methods on classes that are otherwise harder to get to.
It's a nice trick to add to the trick bag, though I'd argue that if you were doing Test-Driven-Development in the first place, you'd have a testable design out-of-the-box, and you wouldn't need to come up with clever hacks such as these.
Having said that, sometimes you just don't have a choice and you need to write tests for legacy code (a.k.a "code that works"), and in that case, this just might...
