I’m learning Ruby and Ruby on Rails and I’m wondering if there are any great resources (other than Exercism of course!) to learn Ruby and/or Rails that any of you would strongly recommend.
I’m looking for books primarily. But some languages nowadays have other more interactive online resources that are fun to try (Tour of Go, rustlings, etc…), and I wonder if there are any good ones for Ruby.
I’d also be interested in this. I haven’t used Rails much since Ruby 1.9 and Rails 3, so I’m overdue an update (current versions are 3.7 and 7.0).
Earlier this week I downloaded DiLeo & Cooper, “Beginning Ruby 3”, Somerville & Gamble, “Beginning Rails 6” and Notodikromo, “Learn Rails 6”. The first two look pretty good from what I’ve read so far, the third one not so much. Admittedly, their main advantage to me is that I could get the ePub files through my university library! I’ve seen good reviews for Ruby & Thomas, “Agile Web Development with Rails 7” and the Amazon free sample looks promising, so I’ll probably pay for a full copy at some point.
I prefer the local Ruby Koans over the online/interactive one, but definitely a classic!
I get quite a few students (A substantial percentage of my students) from this project as well, and fill in the “missing” information. A good resource, overall, for sure. (I also have no idea how students from there are finding me though. If you find out, let me know!)
