Introducing myself to Ruby.
I was made aware of Rails Girls London a short while ago and applied to their London chapter to take part in a free two-day workshop to learn Rails. From that, I decided to go straight to the foundations and fully grasp Ruby itself before developing with Rails/Sinatra/Anything else.
Now; I'm still very much suffering from the recognition of the ease in which I could give up but seem to be pursuing this more than any other language I've tried with. It appears to be a very elegant language and I'm looking forward to progressing.
I'm currently going through "Learn Ruby the Hard Way". I have set up a project on GitHub to track my progress and this also gives me the opportunity to get more familiar with the git command-line interface (CLI).
I've come across some great resources:
The above are not exactly teaching me Ruby, but if I'm going to learn something I'd like to immerse myself in the culture and the day-to-day, I'm likely to learn little bits along the way too.
In terms of learning; apart from LRTHW, I have some other sites I will be looking into once I'm done with the guide.
This was an introductory post about my my own introduction to Ruby. I hope to use this space to track my progress as I go along.
