Ruby CSV Library

I recently worked through a take home code challenge and had some fun converting a CSV File into JSON, but after review of my code by the interviewers realized I made my life much harder than it needed to be. I did the challenge in Ruby as I am most familiar with it but didn’t do enough homework before starting. Maybe it was my nerves or maybe it was my drive to do everything from scratch but I didn’t research any ruby libraries that may have helped me with my task.I think I should say here that on my journey into programming I assumed I was expected to do it all myself. I assumed I am supposed to know every little detail about a language to use its rawest form to do everything I need to. Although it is good to know how anything you use works “under the hood” and working through the development of a language is helpful in learning that language no one expects you to reinvent the wheel (unless otherwise specified) especially when doing a coding challenge.
