Ruby reading tips
In a project at work I’ve been working a lot with Ruby (straight Ruby, not Rails). I kind of like it. I’m not sure why exactly, but it feels… friendly.
While I have learned a bit about Ruby, I am not by any stretch of the imagination a Ruby expert. I’ve been (still am) muddling my way through, trying to learn by doing – and by reading. There’s plenty of great reading available for free online for anyone looking to learn Ruby programming, and I’d like to share links to some of the resources that I have found.
- The Book Of Ruby
- Mr. Neighborly's Humble Little Ruby Book
- Ruby Best Practices
- Why's (poignant) Guide to Ruby
- Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide
If you’re a Ruby newbie like me looking for something to read, that should keep you occupied for a while.
