Ruby On-line Courses

I’m looking for recommendations for excellent ruby on-line courses or
even thoughts regarding certification.

There was some recent conversation about certification, mostly
concluding that it’s not particularly known and not generally a good
thing. I liked the one comment that github commits speak loudly. =)

I only know about rubylearning.org
http://rubylearning.org/class/course/category.php?id=2

I took a free shoes course, but all it really provided me was some
exercise ideas, a forum for general conversation and a couple of
mentors. I don’t know if the ruby course is like this, but if it is it
may not be focused enough like a course with certification would be.

There are also some ruby mentoring projects out there, but I don’t know
how active they are.

One is here:
http://rubymentor.rubyforge.org/

This Ruby Mendicant training looks quite good -

cheers

I don’t know anything about this one, but it seems like it covers the
basics and then some.

Hi, Patil, I created an online curriculum intended to teach Ruby. It has
six
sessions worth of video, going from very little assumed knowledge, up to
releasing a simple web application online. There are also quizzes for
each
session, cheatsheets for common Ruby libraries, and 50 or 60 challenges
to
solve (problem descriptions with associated test suites, and example
solutions you can compare to). The format I use is the format that works
best for me, simple highly focused examples intended to show one aspect
of
how something works or how to use it.

I also frequent this board, so if you have difficulty that you can’t
solve
on your own, I may be able to help out more directly, or if I’m busy,
probably someone else here can. There are a lot of helpful people here
as
many of us realize that teaching others is an effective way to teach
ourselves.
