In a recent interview with BlackWeb2.0 Tiffani Bell a recent college graduate and a Ruby on Rails developer and consultant mentioned a hands on Ruby Tutorial Try Rudy!

Although my programming experience is very, very limited, I decided to try it.  The tutorial took all of 15 minutes – which was just enough to stir my interest and possibly try my hand at it, I’ll keep you posted on that….

According to Wikipedia Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. Ruby originated in Japan during the mid-1990s and was initially developed and designed by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto.

The tutorial is provided by Why the Lucky Stiff a self-proclaimed “fledgling freelance professor, one who will die young and make no lasting impression.” If you would like to try the Ruby tutorial I have provided the link.

Why the Lucky Stiff has also written a e-book, Why’s (poignant) Guide to Ruby.  I’m still reading it, but so far it’s been a fun and entertaining way to learn Ruby.

  1. Heyy Natasha! Glad to see you got some value out of the Black Web 2.0 interview! It’s great to know that you’re one more person that has at least tried out Ruby. It’s a fun language to know and of course, just one more tool in a vast toolbox to build great things. I’m around on the net if you have any more questions about it! –Tiffani AB
