I'm a web developer, I use
Laravel PHP web framework in my projects, and I wanna learn
Ruby so in the future I will be able to use
Ruby On Rails. so would you mind suggesting me one of these
- Book, podcast, newsletter, tutorial, roadmap, package, etc...
I know I could use Google to search for these kinds of stuff, but I want to take advice from the Ruby community members.
Thank You in Advance

Thanks for sharing
I've checked out the books, they look great. : )
I'm trying to remember other sources, but so far this is what I got:
I love Ruby -- free online book about ruby ❤️🌟
Upcase by thoughtbot -- good video tutorials about Rails and more
Design Patterns in Ruby by Russ Olsen -- you can have a idea about the content by reading this blog post by Bogdan or this repo
Michael Hartl has a fantastic book/tutorial Ruby on Rails Tutorial. That's a great starting point. Then my advice would be to just get your hands dirty and start writing code by contributing to open-source rails projects or start a project from scratch.
For a great primer in Ruby and OO Design Sandy Metz's Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby is amazing.
A more advanced book I'm a big fan of is Rebuilding Rails by Noah Gibs. It really gives you a great understanding of how Rails magic works, which can be initially frustrating as a developer new to its "convention over configuration" mantra.
Thank you for the list of resources,
I've heard lots of recommendations, to read this book
Practical Object-Oriented Design in Rubyby Sandi Metz, I'll read it first for sure.
thank you again : )
I would strongly advise against using Ruby. It's slow, documentation is not world-class, a lot of the libraries (Rails especially) use metaprogramming magic that is hard to understand and debug. Ruby project have a lot of maintenance problems. Ruby's popularity has been on steady decline for years.
In my opinion, Python is far superior to Ruby in terms of implementation and documentation (as a bonus, you can extend your expertise beyond web development very easily).
Also, as of 2019, Node.js has matured well and is a very capable development platform, especially if you use Typescript. The demand for developers is quite high.
I recommend "Python for beginners".
Highly recommend GoRails' installation guide, which supports the three major operating systems: gorails.com/setup/
