Pre-newbie question


#1

I want to add Sketchup features, a product that has an API only for
Ruby, so I’ve decided that Ruby is the right choice. I’ve Googled up
lists of tutorials, tried a few. Any recommendations? (I’m an
experienced OO programmer.)

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Ruby and Sketchup would be a blast; I can’t wait to try it myself.

Here’s some Ruby to keep you interested:

The best learning resource sort of depends on where you are coming
from and your programming style. I’m sort of a resource manual type
of person instead of a tutorial person, for example.

I always preferred Try Ruby as the quickest way to jump in:

http://tryruby.hobi.com/

Of course, it’s a little bit outdated, especially the download links it
has at the end. But it’s still absolutely genius.

After that, I couldn’t say. Someone else will probably suggest a book,
and that’s good, too. I would say, Google is your friend – it doesn’t
take any longer to do this

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=ruby+tutorial
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=ruby+book

than it does to ask us.

Thanks! (Make that “hobix”, Google tells me.)

Google lacks the “don’t just list them, rank them by quality” feature.
