    The instructor has provided quite a lot of information right at the beginning in the form of his Little Ruby Book and sample code. Using his proprietary IDE in the videos instead of a freely available one is not my first choice. I stay away from Visual Studio as much as possible. I ended up using komodo edit on my mac, which also has a run option that pops up a terminal when it runs the ruby script. I find the book easier to follow than the video because you have to watch the source pane and the run pane, back and forth. A little more time showing how to access freely available docs would have been nice. Again his Visual Studio product (doesn’t run on my mac) isn’t available to everyone. In the course of reviewing the provided examples, I asked questions that were considered too advanced for this course, leaving me with gaps in my understanding. Those questions were left unanswered. In one case the instructor denied that he had provided the sample code which was the basis of my question. Overall I came away from the course with a fairly detailed understanding of beginning Ruby programming, which was my goal in taking this course.

    I am new to Ruby but have programmed in Python, Java, C/C++ for years. This course is truly aimed at non programmers. Would recommend one of Huw’s more advanced courses if you have any programming experience.

    Editing my review as I go through the lessons. Lowering my initial rating for now because there are a lot of asides getting in the way of the structured lesson plan. Bits of incomplete information that I find hard to make sense of and apply (section 5, lesson 21). Too many promises that things will make more sense later, be explained more later, that reading the book will explain things, when the video itself should be the thing itself that teaches. This tutorial should be re titled Some Demonstrations of Basic Ruby Concept as its is basically a primer for reading the book and doing your own trial and error, nothing in the videos makes this a way to learn basic ruby programming and there are no steps because that would imply each lesson leads to a tangible destination. Starting to lose hope that there is anyone out there who really knows how to teach to absolute beginners, which requires a strict plan, putting everything into context leading the toward completion of a small project where you can see the various elements working together. Still the best tutorial I’ve used on Udemy yet, though discouraging.

    This course would be a good choice if 1) you already have some knowledge of Ruby and need to quickly refresh it (say, for a job interview, which was the case for me) or 2) you already have an OK understanding of object oriented programming and want a quick intro to Ruby. If you’re neither of those, I’d advise you to seek a more in depth course. Most of the important concepts in Ruby are given a superficial treatment here that I think will probably only frustrate anyone new to object oriented coding.

    I thought this was a great course. I had some prior knowledge of ruby going into the course, but this course helped embed what I had already learned. Compared to other courses where I have found that the instructor will talk too fast or jump between explanations, Huw takes time to explain things in an easy to understand and calm manner. I enjoyed this course, worth every penny. Now onto the Advanced Ruby Programming: 10 Steps to Mastery!
