Hi,
I’m new to ruby and programming in general but I really like what I can
do
with ruby so far so if anything I say seems wrong, it most likely is.
just
correct me and lets move on.
Programming a command prompt that asks “Shall we play a game?” was fun
and
all but I want to take my experience with ruby to the next level. I want
to
make windows applications since web development really isn’t my thing
any
more.

This is how I found Ironruby… Which I have no clue how to use but am
sure
as hell that it can help me make windows applications. Now asking the
one
and only stupid question that will most likely never get an answer “How
to
I use this?”. Don’t answer that, Don’t even think about it because it
will
drive you mad trying to word it into a 500 page book.

Instead please point me in the magical direction of the already written
500
page book on how to get from point A(installing/configuring where I can
start writing code/debugging building and testing) to Z(I guess that
would
just be building exe for distribution)

Now I’m not telling you NOT to write the 500 page book, if your willing
to
help me out that way then I shall read it and love it.

thx
