The Book Of Ruby…

The Book Of Ruby is a comprehensive free tutorial to the Ruby language. Eventually it will form a book of more than 400 pages in 20 chapters.

It is being provided in the form of a PDF document in which each chapter is accompanied by ready-to-run source code for all the examples. The Introduction explains how to use this source code in Ruby In Steel or any other editor/IDE of your choice.

The Book Of Ruby is written by Huw Collingbourne – one of the developers of the Ruby In Steel IDE.

It is being provided here on the Sapphire Steel Software site as a PDF book which will grow as chapters are added.
