I am completely new to Ruby. I know actionscript, html, css etc but have no programming knowledge of anything else.
I have Ruby pre installed on my 10.4.10 mac but I simply have no idea where to start. I have read tutorials, looked at Terminal etc but I really need some kind of complete beginners guide - can anyone point me in the right direction?
Have you downloaded the free ebook from Sitepoint?
This post also has some good resources to check out:
Thanks for your reply - I have the Patrick Lenz book but I'm so new to it that I can't even work out how to start up rails or my sql!?
Are you trying to learn Ruby or Rails? They are not the same thing.
"Learn to Program" by Chris pine is a great book/website for ruby/programming (not rails) newbs (it helped me a lot)
