The Road to Learning Ruby on Rails: Part 1 (Ruby)

I'm a self taught developer at 30. I tweet about my journey learning Software Development and will be providing the resources I've used along the way to hopefully help others.

I'm back with another article this time on learning Ruby and RoR (Really?!?! Anthony isn't Ruby like a dead language?).

Well not quite. Ruby is still around today in some companies but the reason why I decided to learn it is because I do think this is one of the best first languages to learn as a beginner. For those who are on the self taught route into Software Engineering I highly recommend learning Ruby first. For me I have worked in JavaScript and Python and I really enjoy working with those languages as well.

Ruby is literally like pure english which I really like so far. It's an extremely accessible, dynamically typed, and expressive language. I'm currently using Code academy to learn Ruby but I have found an awesome resource on Freecodecamp on learning Ruby.

I hope this helps newbies get started on learning to programming. Follow me on my journey to getting proficient in Ruby on Rails.
