What Should I Know About This Dive?
Congrats! You are thinking about pursuing (or continuing your pursuit of) Ruby! Awesome you!
Despite what you may read on the internet, Ruby is still one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. Its # 1 use is as the backend programming for Ruby on Rails web applications. In fact, BreakDiving.io is completely built using a Ruby (on Rails) backend. So if you're wondering if Ruby has modern applications... you wouldn't be reading this if it did not!
So in answer to your question, the answer is yes, Yes, YES! Learn Ruby already!
If you're ready to move forward with Ruby, we are proud to share with you this completely free online compendium of resources to help you get started with, improve, and ultimately master the Ruby language.
To that end, on the pages to come, you will find a bunch of truly helpful Ruby coding resources, each answering a key question you need the answer to. We also provide a list of resources, broken down by level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced, to ensure you get the support you need, no matter at what level you may find yourself.
Where do the resources come from? Our members and staff. We individually screen every resource prior to posting to ensure high quality and to verify the authenticity of each. If it's listed, it means a) one of our Break Diving members has used the resource and highly recommends it, and b) the listed resource has in some way supported the growth of Break Diving and believes in our mission (or at the very least, has not actively refused to support our mission). You can trust that each resource we list is legitimate, and has our Break Diving seal of approval. If you have any issues with any of the resources listed, please reach out and let us know!
That all being said, it's time to take a deep dive into Ruby. Ready?
