Want To Learn Ruby


#1

So I heard Ruby on Rails is a hot topic, and would like to learn both Ruby and Ruby on Rails. I have looked into some online courses like http://www.codeplace.com which teaches you to create 4 real world applications. Also am looking at 2 courses on udemy in perticular https://www.udemy.com/the-complete-ruby-on-rails-developer-course/ and https://www.udemy.com/professional-rails-5-development-course/ . The codeplace one is normally $397/yr, but there is a sale on stacksocial that allows you to get a lifetime subscription for $49. The udemy courses are normally $194.90, but there is also a sale going on that allows you to but them for $9.99 each. Has anyone taken any of these courses and if so what is your opnion on them? Do you have any better recommendions for learning Ruby and Ruby on Rails? For the record i am a visual learner. :slight_smile:

Sincerely,

Aleeious

@Aleeious I would avoid Udemy, most of the courses are made by generalist that make every possible course they can.

In other words, they aren’t experts in the topic.

Here’s a great tutorial to help you get started with Ruby:

Since Ruby is what Ruby on Rails with made with you should focus on learning ruby first, it will make things a lot easier for you :slight_smile:

Let me know if you have any questions.
