Learn Ruby: The Beginner Guide: An Introduction To Ruby Programming

Ruby ProgrammingLearn Ruby Programming was written for both new programmers and those wanting to learn another language. If you ever wanted to explore the Ruby programming language without committing to weeks of your time, this book is for you. I've taken everything from my tutorial videos and consolidated them into this perfect collection of coding exercises.Video Tutorials IncludedMost the lessons in this book have a corresponding video that can help solidify the concept being taught. Video links are at the end of the book. New videos that go even further than the book are added often. If you have questions on a particular topic, check to see if there's a video for it. If there is, check the video's comment section to see if the question has been asked and answered already. If it hasn't, leave your question in the video's comment section. I will work to answer it as soon as possible.About MeMy name is Jake Day Williams. I teach programming at Wild Academy.Frequently Asked QuestionsQ. Should I learn Ruby?A. Yes.

Jake Day William's book is a great primer for someone learning to code/ learning ruby. It is straight forward and helps break down elements of Ruby code. This would be especially good for someone who wants to learn to code but struggles to know where to start (Hint, THIS IS IT). This book will help you if you aren't sure "what is this thingy called." Or when looking at basic code and wondering "What the heck might this thing do."Jake hosts a youtube channel "wildacademy" where you can hear him walk through the exercises in the book as well as continue to USE the things he taught. His lessons walk you through coding and provide other insights into programming. He has even suggested a book or two that I've decided to pick up and feel edified for the effort.Now to balance this review out I must gripe some. This is essentially a cut down version of Why's (poignant) guide to Ruby, and this book is not nearly as exhaustive as well (it's certainly missing distracting side stories and cartoon foxes). Jake's book is quite concise so it will in no way be the last book you read on Ruby. That being said, he gets ride of a lot of distractions which makes it an easy read in less than 3 hours. (I did it even with a crying baby trying to climb over me.) I hope the author can churn out the next book in the series quickly so I can keep this programming buzz going but until then his youtube channel will have to suffice.

I found this book to be extremely useful in understanding how to use Ruby and how to code. Works very well with the tutorials from Wild Academy on YouTube. Also helped to explain certain parts I had difficulties with. If your learning Ruby it's a must.

To say that this book is brief is already saying too much. If you are looking for an incredibly succinct overview of the most basic aspects of Ruby syntax this will do, but so will hundreds of web sites for free, while this book cost $3.99 in the kindle store last time I looked. (8-30-1015) This book is 125 pages (this is a very generous estimate by my kindle since nearly half of the pages are blank due to odd formatting of the book).So in short, if this is what you are looking for in an introduction or reference and you do not mind the price, go for it. If you just want the info fast and easy, then read a free web page and save up for a better book.

Excellent work Jake. I am retired and had never had the time to dive into programming during my working career.I ran across your videos on youtube and have enjoyed learning Ruby and the way that you teach it.Keep up the good work and congratulations on your first book.

The author goes to lengths to make this an easy read. The effort is very much appreciated. With witty remarks and references to pop culture, I almost forgot this is a "nerd" book. I like that the author covered all the basic data types and even mentioned some useful shortcuts. He even discusses procs and lambdas, taking us to the cusp of beginner/intermediate ruby. I wish metaprogramming was introduced here as well. Nevertheless, this was a thorough introduction.

very readable for someone who knows nil about programming and wants to learn ruby to start (me). p.s.: ruby does not use a compiler, but works from files. You do things in a text editor, of which there are many, and save your work as a .rb file(what i need now is a list of imac terminal commands.)

This is the 3rd Ruby book I've purchased, and reviewed. It's exactly what I was looking for (the other two sucked). Jake seamlessly hits every item that the Ruby novice needs to know and doesn't make any of the mistakes that many of the tutorials and books make, which is to unknowingly skip over something, leaving the reader/user hanging in the dark with a big damn question mark over their head. He gives examples at every step, explains what's going on and tries to make it funny. There aren't too many words, it's not a plethora of endless paragraphs, in fact, it's about as concise as anyone can make each section. He even has YT videos to accompany each section! How cool is that?! Nobody else even comes close to that.[...] I'm a critical ass when it comes to reviews, and I am happy to give Jake a very rare 5 stars. if only he'll get off his butt and make a JavaScript book, then I'll be happy!

Great book. Everything is explained in a simple way, easy to understand, even for beginners and not native speakers. This book, in combination with Jake's Youtube-Tutorial ( ) is a great and really cheap way to start learning Ruby.Thank You Jake!!!
