Ruby Beginner - Recommended Books

Hi

I’m new to this Ruby thing. Would like to get some books to get up to
speed on this language.

I’ve only done BASIC and VBA. I would like to be able to design a web
app
for employer’s rental business. Any help would be great.

Cheers

Hello, try Peter C.'s “Beginning Ruby, from Novice to Professional”
from
Apress. It has been a great tool for me to learn Ruby. I have done C,
Pascal
and Basic before, never Web programming and I can say it is getting me
on
track… maybe later on Rails…jejeje

I don’t know how many you’re looking for, but here’s a link to the book
reviews (and author interviews) I’ve done:

http://on-ruby.blogspot.com/search/label/Books

they’re mostly Ruby or RoR related

I am really enjoying this one:

http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596529864/index.html

You learn as you go along trying out many examples in the chapters. At
the
end of each chapter
you try the exercises to see what you have mastered so far.

Really good.

HTH.

For learning:
Peter C.'s, Begining Ruby, from Apress
For reference:
Programming Ruby
Ruby Cookbook

After Peter C.'s book, if you want to learn Rails,
from Sitepoint publishing, their Rails book will get you going
or from Freinds of ED, Rails Solutions
For reference:
Agile Web D. With Rails
Rails Cookbook
