These days are rude for nurses in France, so my wife would like to completely switch her activity. Living with a geek for nearly 4 years lead her to some changes: she’s using exclusively her Debian box at home, accept the presence of a NAS in our living room and even… would like to learn ruby.
So I need some help from my readers: do you know good teaching materials for ruby for BIG beginners? Have you some tips and advices for my quest to learn a scripting language to a neophyt?
You can get in touch with me by comments, mail, IM, IRC or whatever.
Thank you by advance.
Last august, I put on github the marvelous to-do list manager (using RoR1) written last year by Marc-André Cournoyer (who released thin v1.0, great job, guy!). I just named: donebox (truly, the best to-do list manage EVER).
At this time, my only objective was to adapt it for Ruby on Rails 2.0 and fix a behavior or two. Now, I want to enhance donebox to open its horizon.
Here the main ideas:
- Move categories as a Model to add useful features as sorting, hiding, etc.
- Add hooks or plugin capabilities to permit non-intrusive extensions
- Develop greats plugins for every body use
Of course, I’m open to every suggestion to enhance it.
BTW, a great THANK YOU to Marc-André Cournoyer, his work is just marvelous.
