I though it be cool to hear what your first experience with Ruby was.
Was it a job, or just a fun (cough, cough) side project that you
decided to take on?
For me, Ruby is my entrance to the world of programming. My first and
only computer class was as a HS sophomore in 1986.
And as for my first project, I’m fighting my way through a fourm
tutorial written for 1.6 (I’m riding 2.02).
I’ve been learning programming these last 2 years, mostly C and C#, and
now I’m getting into this ruby language.
Maybe I’m a little unexperienced to realize all the power that ruby has,
but for now I can see many cool things on it.
So now I’m re-writing lots of my old C scripts, and I’d consider that my
first work in ruby “by myself”
I’ve been enjoying the Why’s great tutorial until now, and some other
sample projects, also gave Hackety Hack a try and learnt some concepts
having a great time.
Just curiosity, wich tutorial are you fighting your way through?
