I’ve been hearing about Ruby for some time now (at least 4 years). It wasn’t until Ken got into it that I started thinking about it more seriously. It’s an object-oriented language and appeals to my academic side. It’s also pretty well thought out, and has some really great features (blocks!). Anyway, I’m working on building up my coding chops. It’s been a while, and right now ANSI C is my strongest language (C is a nice language, though).
Anyway, I purchased the PDF version of “Programming Ruby” and am reading through it. Good book. Well laid out and is getting me to the code ASAP. Anyway, I’ll post my progress!
My first real project is going to be a web-based prayer request app. I know, a CMS would probably give me what I need, but I want to design something I can use.
