The “Learning Ruby” Project
Two weeks ago, I started learning Ruby. To get a first acquaintance with the language, I followed the Ruby course on Code Academy. I had never followed any tutorial there and it’s alright. It’s quite simplistic because they target beginner programmers. For me, it was good to get to know the syntax of the language and get in touch with a few basic Ruby constructs like blocks, procs and modules. So far I am really enjoying the language; I like the fact that it is so concise.
The next steps for me are to practice the language by solving some Euler problems while at the same time reading Programming Ruby, diving into the Ruby on Rails documentation, follow the Ruby tutorials on Code School and writing tests for an application that I took over. Needless to say it’s going to be busy times!
