Learning Ruby Programming

By 1st September 2015 June 23rd, 2017 Blog


Recently I have started to learn Ruby Programming. I’ve always liked web development and enjoy the reward of seeing instant changes of my work. I have basic understanding of how coding works from HTML, CSS and some PHP. A close friend of mine recommended me to learn Ruby on Rails, or simply Rails. At the beginning of my initial start, I couldn’t quite get my head around what Ruby on Rails is. But after looking into it a bit deeper I come to understand that Ruby is a programming language, like #C, JAVA, PHP… and Rails is a framework. Ruby on Rails is a model–view–controller (MVC) framework, providing default structures for a database, a web service, and web pages.

How to get started with Ruby Programming?

  • I started first by watching videos online about what Ruby on Rails is, what is a framework, what is MVC…
  • I watch tutorial of basic coding for Ruby.
  • I then went and did some interactive learning of the Ruby language at tryruby.org
  • Once I got a good idea of what Ruby is, I then installed Ruby and Rails onto my computer. I follow the step-by-step instructions from: 
    rubyinstaller.org for Ruby
    installrails.com for Rails for Rails
  • Then I was recommended by my friend to go and complete all the exercise from learnrubythehardway.org
