So maybe you tried out Ruby on Rails, but found it too hard, because you didn’t know the Ruby programming language.

Maybe you have worked a bit with Ruby and want to learn it properly. After all it has many uses, including games.

Perhaps your boss or client threw you in the deep end with a Ruby on Rails project, and you are struggling with Ruby?

Or maybe you just decided you would like to add the Ruby programming language to your resume to give yourself some better opportunities.

If so, you are in the right place.

This course is going to teach you have to program in the Ruby programming language. No previous programming experience is assumed.

This is the perfect primer for developers looking to tackle Ruby on Rails. You need to know Ruby well to be a great Ruby on Rails developer, and this course will give you the skills you need in Ruby.

Why Ruby?

Ruby is used in a wide range of fields, but is best known as a language for Web Applications, because of the Ruby on Rails framework. The general purpose nature of Ruby makes it suitable for a wide array of programming tasks, just like Perl, Python and other general purpose languages.

Ruby was originally designed with the goal of making programming fun, and in Japan, where it came from, Ruby was used to make games. You will actually learn to create a game in Ruby in this course.

Plus, Ruby programming code reads like English and that makes it a lot easier to understand if you are just starting out as a programmer.

    Informative course. The instructor takes the time to explain each step and provides learning a small digestible portions. I have previous programming knowledge including basic knowledge of Ruby. At times the course seems a bit slow for me, which makes me feel like this a paced well for some just starting out with Ruby as their first language! Great Job Steve… I have also now added the Rails course to my courses 🙂

    Thought it was very good since I’m a beginner to this subject, I appreciated the direct simplicity and explanation of Ruby. When he got to the last section, actually coding an entire game, it went over my head pretty fast. I had to watch with my jaw dropped and going HUHHHH? But that is good, I think, so when I try my own stuff and come back later, most of that coding will make sense. That’s where the real world marketable skills come in…I recommend to anyone serious about getting off the ground with Ruby.

    I was not expecting this course to be so in depth. I am glad that I enrolled in this course because in only few minutes I had my machine up and running with the tools I would need for Ruby. The instructor is very good at explaining stuff and showing you ways of coding in Ruby. You can’t go wrong with this instructor.

    The course is pretty good at showing what Ruby can do. Not sure why so much Git is involved in a beginners course.

    Concise in examples and explanation. The use of git is amazing, not many other courses teach this invaluable skill. Very well done!

    I am partway through Tim Buchalka’s Java Masterclass and he is great. Steve, however, is nowhere near as organized, and speaks quite slow and puts me to sleep. In the very first few videos, where Steve shows what to download and how, it would be nice to have some explanation before going through the steps, so if I decided to use a browser for my programming I wouldn’t have already had my program installed. Barring that, it would’ve been nice to have just been told to use one program for consistency, and shown how to set up my program, to be on the same page, not Eh well just download whichever. If you just use the installer, you don’t need to download 7 zip, and you don’t need to even mess with the files. The cmder program is a totally unnecessary download if you just use a program’s own built in terminal. He doesn’t explain the basics of why things are the way they are quite like Tim can, and I understand the driving the car before knowing how it works thing, but this course is quite underwhelming. It’s obvious to me that he just doesn’t have the decades of experience to teach smoothly like Tim does.
