A shedload of Ruby links

I definitely want to learn Ruby this summer, starting as soon as I get this exam team stuff out of the way (or possibly sooner). Here, then, is a collection of resources which I might find useful. I might revisit this post and expand it later as I find new stuff or add thoughts on what’s here. If anyone has anything to add, feel free.

I have already mentioned why’s (poignant) guide to Ruby.

The first edition of Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer’s Guide is available free online.

Later, like the world and his wife right now, I want to be Rolling with Ruby on Rails. More at the Ruby On Rails homepage.

Then, learn some Javascript and tackle Ajax on Rails.

In terms of reference material…

The Ruby home page.

Ruby Central and the library reference.

RubyGems – CPAN for Ruby, I think?

Ruby Garden looks worth watching and has the Ruby FAQ.

And ooh, RubyForge.

That should be enough to keep me going for a while.
