How to improve my Ruby Skill?


(-g3-) #1

Hello ,

I started working with ruby about 3 month ago.

I am not really a programmer,
I am searching for a good way to improve my ruby and my
programming skill.

Can anyone introduce me some good books or sites.

thanks,
gane

hello

the best way to improve your skill is to program. you can either
write your own apps or contribute to some open source projects
in Ruby.

reading other people’s code is also a good way to learn.
check the ruby application archiv, there you will find
many useful stuff like Ruby/DBI or REXML

I learned something from porting little perl scripts to Ruby.
I do this sometimes to see how Perl stuff can be done in Ruby or
Python in order to improve my Ruby and Python skills.

some good books are:

  • The Ruby Way, Samspublishing
  • Ruby Developers Guide, Syngress
  • The Ruby Programming language, Addison Wesley
  • The Pragmatic Programmer, same authors as the one before
    (on of the best programming books ever, does not cover Ruby
    but has lot of useful stuff for any programmer)
  • Java design patterns workbook, Addison Wesley (have just started this book
    but it looks great. the knowlegde you gain there can be applied to Ruby
    too)

My suggestion, start with :

"Teach yourself Ruby in 21 days " by Mark Slagle (Sams Publishing)

All the other books are very good too.
