Geoffrey Grosenbach on how to learn any programming language (rubylearning.com)
1 point by IndianGuru 2586 days ago | hide | past | web | 1 comment | favorite

Interesting way of going about things. My approach which I'm trying now is pretty simple. Immersing myself in everything Ruby. Read up a bit on the history and purpose of the language, then learning all the basics, whilst using a few full app tutorials. Along with bugging people on Skype whenever I get a roadblock that Google can't solve ;-)
