Are there any sites that have an extensive resource of ruby exercises for beginning/intermediate level learning? I'm not referring to rails, but ruby programming in general. I'm currently reading The Ruby Programming Langauge and the book doesn't do much on the side of providing practical examples and exercises. More so just a dense theory read. Which is good, but at the same time I would like to begin getting my feet wet some building some things just to become more familiar with the language and such. Anyone know of any such resources? Furthermore, I know all about the ruby site and the free books online, but I'm looking more for development briefs to test my progress rather than another book.
