I'm Collecting Media Refernces for Ruby and Rails


#1

I’m trying to collect media references (URLs) to articles, podcasts, and
videos about Ruby and Ruby on Rails, like this month’s Linux Journal (
http://www.linuxjournal.com/issue/147) or the recent DDJ article (
http://www.ddj.com/dept/architect/187203512).

If have such a collections yourself (or just know of some good
references),
could you please share them on this thread.

Thanks,
Curt

It’s not all “media” but I usually send the following links to people
after I mention ruby and they don’t know anything about it. Might
help you too:

About page, from the source: (a little dry, but it’s all there)
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/20020101.html

This presentation sums up a lot of Ruby concepts (whether or not you
know Java):
http://onestepback.org/articles/10things/

Rails, the web framework that helped bring Ruby to light (The
screencasts under “get excited” are pretty impressive):

One of the early Rails article/tutorials:

I’ve got several Rails articles on my blog, http://glu.ttono.us. Look
at the Understanding section on the right. Rails for Designers and the
Environments Cheat Sheet were dugg.

I’m assuming you mean ‘print media’. Not sure if any of these made it
to print, but they’re likely candidates. Found them with a simple
google search:

I mostly mean mainstream media (online or print), although the definition
is a bit fuzzy.

Thanks for all your answers… keep them coming if you’ve got more.
