Practicing Ruby - some awesome lessons for all programmers

July 23, 2014

Tonight I am suffering with writer’s block. I am not sure of what to write about and the code that I wrote today was just plain useless (I tried to do some OCR using Ruby).

I was surfing browsing the interwebs Internet trying to find some inspiration and came across Practicing Ruby. To quote directly from the Practicing Ruby website

Practicing Ruby
Delightful lessons for dedicated programmers

Since 2010, Practicing Ruby has produced a total of 94 articles, 
all of which were funded by our generous subscribers.

That is pretty impressive 94 articles which dive into topics such as Framework Design, Unobtrusive Ruby, Structural Design Patterns, Solid, How to practice and plenty more.

Some of the articles are written by the big names in Ruby like Aaron Patterson and Avdi Grimm. I definitely see myself spending quite some time on this site going through these articles.

I did notice this bit of info above the massive “Subscribe to Practicing Ruby ($8/month)” button

If you enjoy these articles, please consider becoming a Practicing Ruby subscriber. 
By doing so, you'll get immediate access to the 12 articles that we published between 
April 2013 and March 2014 which have not been released to the public  yet. 
You'll also be supporting our work, as we continue on our mission to build a great 
learning resource for all Ruby programmers.

I am pretty sure that if these articles are as great as they seem to be I will definitely be forking over some cash. I would suggest all developers regardless of their language of choice check out Practicing Ruby as the site clearly deals with Computer Programming topics that happen to be demonstrated in Ruby.

Discussion, links, and tweets

My name is Deon Heyns and I am a developer learning things and documenting them in realtime. Python, Ruby, Scala, .NET, and Groovy are all languages I have written code in. I appeared in the New York Post once. I host my code up at GitHub and Bitbucket so have a look at my code, fork it and send those pull requests.
