  • Ruby Koans: Learn by testing, using Minitest.
  • CodeAcademy: Introductory projects for both Ruby and Rails.
  • CodeFights: Programming puzzles to solve in the language of your choice. This is fun because you get to see how much shorter the solutions are in Ruby compared to many other languages.😀 Also has competitive/social features if that's appealing to you.

I've recently started using RuboCop in my work as well, which has unexpectedly been a great learning resource. It shows me alternate methods and idiomatic syntax that I didn't know or had forgotten about.
