Practical Ruby Projects: Ideas for the Eclectic Programmer (Books for Professionals by Professionals) (Paperback)
Revitalized by Ruby on Rails, the Ruby language continues to grow in popularity. Books like this are necessary to fill the demand. Here is a classic of its kind; required reading for Ruby programmers who have already mastered the basics and want to learn higher level techniques. Practical Ruby Projects presents nine diverse projects that will teach new and innovative techniques in a learn-by-example fashion. These projects include a turn-based adventure game and a generative music creator. While there are many other Ruby titles, none of them take this unique project-based approach to teaching. It's an original approach to Ruby, which will inspire existing Ruby users, rather than just rehashing the basics.
