why’s (poignant) guide to ruby
This has got to be the funniest (online) book ever. I'm only to chapter 3 and I can't stop laughing.
I can't keep away from RoR! I'm seeing more and more articles in journals about it, it's getting slashdotted, It's even getting attention at news.google.com.
Perl 6 better hurry itself into reality before Ruby becomes the Perl of the Web 2.0 (I hate the whole `web 2.0` thing, but you catch my dirft). RoR simply rocks.
Now if I could only get past
render :text => "Hello Ruby" and actually get one of the scaffold examples to work. Every time I try to get past some simple example I run into some problem and get distracted by my actual work, never to return to my n-th attempt at really learning this. And the stupid thing is that I've tried on my Mac, Linux, and Windows. Every time I either do something wrong, or Rails just isn't behaving properly. I'm gonna assume the former.
Update: Did I mention that the afore mentioned site (Wh's poingnant Guide to Ruby) has advertisements on it? Well, if not -- let me mention too, that these advertisements point to the very same page.
Question: how cool is that?
Question 2: why didn't I think of that first?
