I'm new to Ruby, can anyone recommend a good guide to get me up and running with the language?


Thanks!

It's perhaps geared more towards people who are new to programming, but I have to link to why's (poignant) guide to ruby just in case it can reach new readers.

I'm fond of https://learnxinyminutes.com/docs/ruby/ if you're already a programmer but just want to pick up on some of the quick syntax bits.

Try it out: https://ruby.github.io/TryRuby/

Simple introduction: https://pine.fm/LearnToProgram/

Documentation for review: https://ruby-doc.org/

Challenges to learn the fundamentals: http://rubykoans.com/

More advanced challenges: https://exercism.io/tracks/ruby

All of these! Exercism is changing my life right now.

I have a whole list of "learning ruby" resources, for once you get past the bare basics of learning to program. Next Steps for Learning Ruby

Try out Sololearn, it's wonderful and explains all concepts in a very easy to understand way. It just gets straight to the point and is interactive. It's available for web browser, and both iOS and Android. It's also great as it helps you apply concepts you learn right within the app, plus a great community :)

I've also heard Exercism is great

And that CodeAcadeny is decent

The pragprog.com Pickaxe book. Pragmatic Studios also have a number of very good intro courses for ruby.
