I’ve finally made it through the Intro to Ruby section of the Odin Project!
This week I completed the Ruby Basics section, including going over some of the additional resources. The one I found most helpful was A Beginner’s Guide To Ruby– to the point that I actually wished that I’d read that first! The assignments for the section included Ruby Monk’s Intro to Ruby, which I did struggle with a bit. I know it’s a really popular resource, and I can see why! It covers a lot of ground, but I can see why the Odin Project warned that it was fast-moving!
I’m still looking for a bit of practice in Ruby, outside of the curriculum, so I’m going to be having a bit of a go with Codecademy’s Ruby track over the weekend.
I’m really starting to see the appeal of Ruby- the code is super readable, even for a newbie like me!
Next week I’ll be moving on to the next section: testing basics. I’ve heard a lot about the importance of testing before, so I’m really looking forward to that!
Hope everyone’s had a productive week!

I would definitely recommend Codecademy’s Ruby track. Also, the readings in the actual Ruby section from “Beginning Ruby” will probably be helpful, they’re pretty good at explaining things.
Nothing worthwhile is easy. Just keep it up, I’m sure you’ll get through it. 🙂
