Now that I'm back from CodeMash
, where I attended an overview session called "Rails 3 from A to Z", I'm excited about taking a deeper dive into Rails. My first exposure to Ruby was the excellent Ruby Koans
PreCompiler session at CodeMash 2010. I didn't complete all the koans at that session, and I didn't follow up and finish them afterward (although I was bitten again by the koan bug when I helped Dianne work on her Scala Koans PreCompiler session
during Six Weeks of Scala
), but now that I've completed Rails for Zombies
, I'm totally going to go back and finish the ruby koans. Maybe before that, I'll finish another Ruby tutorial I started, TryRuby.org
. It leads you through lessons and has you enter your answers at a command prompt. After that, I will probably go on to RailsTutorial.org
(as recommended at the end of Rails for Zombies.) They have a free tutorial book online and they sell a pdf version and tutorial screencasts.
And after that, I've found a series of interesting articles on programming Rails on Apple's website:
And somewhere among all that, I'll want to learn the Twitter API
, as I have an idea for a site related to Twitter.
Another CodeMash 2011 session
that I've taken to heart is the awesome Git Immersion
. While my department at work uses Subversion, I've started keeping my experiments in a git repository. And since so Ruby (and other projects) use git and/or github
, it will be good to be familiar with git.
