Ruby For Programmers
About the Course
This course is a fast introduction to the Ruby language for experienced programmers.Start coding in Ruby today.You are already a programmer so you don't need a Ruby course that wastes time on telling you how programs work. This course gets straight down to business. It tells you what Ruby is all about, what makes it similar to other languages - and what makes it different. It explains the stuff you really need to know. It won't bog you down by trying to describe every gnarly little corner of the language. It concentrates on the essentials - with no unnecessary padding. If you need to get to grips with Ruby fast, this is the course for you.
