I have followed the ruby track on codeacademy.
Now I noticed that I still know not enough to solve the easy problems on
Now I wonder can I better take a good free online book or take the ruby track on
I know that I learn the best by doing things instead of just reading about it.
So if the best step is a book then a book with a lot of challenges/exercises.
I’d say, try a real life application. Write a program to solve a problem
that you have. Try to automate a task for example. This is what helps me
the most, because sometimes just reading about things (e.g. when to use
lambdas, when to use classes, when/why/how to use/structure a module)
gives you a vague idea. When you see real-life approaches, especially
‘how other people do it’ the knowledge sinks.
What do you experts think about this?
I’m not an expert by any means though
