Free Ruby Books
Lucky for us Ruby enthusiasts, there are quite a number of free ruby learning materials available. All of the below are free and online, so download if you like. My favorite thing to do was print out whole books at my college when the semester was ending and I had leftover ‘printing credits’.
My favorite is _Why’s Poignant Guide, but it is a bit wacky for some. I like the humor, it helps me keep turning the pages (digital pages I guess).
- How to Think like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Ruby
- _Why’s Poignant Guide to Ruby
- Mr.Neighborly’s Humble Little Ruby Book
- Programming Ruby (The PickAxe Book)
If you’ve got a free Ruby learning material you’d like me to link to then shoot me an email: joe(at)BeginnerRuby.com
Online Training/Interactive Practice Lessons
Ruby Koans – Takes a little to get setup but looks to be a very well rounded and complete lesson plan. Also, as far as I know it is 100% free.
