Hi, I’m trying to get started with Ruby, but I don’t feel that any of
the current books or material that I’ve uncovered are really what I
need to get moving at full steam. I have a background in computer
science and have programmed in C, C++, Java, Perl, VB, Assembly (x86)
and others, however I’ve been away from real programming (aside from
minor php stints over the last couple years) for about 4 years.
I’d like to get started with ruby, however I really need some small
exercises or projects ranging from basic beginning to intermediate
and advanced as I lack context while reading through material and
tutorials. My ultimate goal is to master RoR, however I feel that I
would like a foundation built upon understanding ruby before jumping
into frameworks, such as RoR.
Any thoughts or ideas or material available that helps the rubber hit
the road more appropriately for folks like me?
Thanks much & kind regards,
