The best way to improve your Ruby skills is to use Ruby. It makes
little difference what you do with it, just do something.

Try them all then you will not only improve your Ruby skills but learn
about all the frameworks at the same time.

Programming in Ruby will improve your Ruby skills.

Work on non trivial projects that involve things that you have not
done before and see them through to completion. This way you will gain
experience and hone your skills. Reflect upon the quality of your
work. Criticise your own work. Find your own mistakes and learn from

There is no shortcut.

Having said that just sticking to what you know and not venturing
beyond your comfort zone will result in little growth despite how much
effort you put in to it.

There is this website that allows you to solve problems with programming
languages ( http://www.codechef.com/ ) , one suggestion is to pick
a challenge and use ruby to solve it.

What I actually find most important is being able to do a well worded
google search (I sometimes wonder if there should be a qualification for
that in itself lol?). The Ruby and the Rails forums are very friendly

I usually start a google search with Ruby or Rails and the version
followed by a question that tries to avoid using common phrases.

Finding a past thread relating to something you are trying to achieve
very often lead to an excellent discussion with different approaches to
doing things. I nearly always find someone has written something worth

How you go about learning, also depends on your main goal. Is it to get
app up and running, or is it to become more proficient as a programmer
am guessing probably some of both)

Occasionally digging into some existing code can highlight areas where
may want to improve your understanding. Particularly when thinking
how to structure a program.

If you want to learn Ruby, then any Ruby based framework is likely to
although I only have experience of Rails. What I do think is that Rails
opinionated approach can help you to formulate some good approaches to
own development.

Using a framework is a great way to build an app, but may not be the
way to get to understand how to develop in an object orientated way.
this, following the tutorial in the Ruby Book, is a start. What I found
great fun and very challenging was developing a small app using GTK2 and
Ruby. With GTK you can build a small window based app, although getting
your head around the API can be a bit challenging. But starting
from scratch is useful to get to understand how to structure your
where to put your code and how to define and build objects etc.

Just my thoughts!
