Starting with Ruby
This excellent read from Arto Bendiken has inspired me to do 2 things:
- start learning Ruby
- keep going with learning Scheme which I haven't touched much since I started teaching myself on the plane to Australia
I hunted around for some Python to Ruby guides and comparisons and found the following useful links:
- Ian Bicking's awesome comparison between Python and Ruby: Ian tries hard to stay impartial and keep the discussion on the really important issues.
- A Ruby introduction for programmers: useful quick notes for those who already program in other dynamic languages.
- The intro from the Programming Ruby book isn't bad.
Now I just have to make some time for all this. I still want to keep contributing to Yum and starting doing a Dutch language course as well (my Dutch isn't too bad but I want to get a let more proficient). Yoga is on the cards as well. I'm sure it can be done with a bit of planning and enthusiasm.
