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
Here my github donebox (work great on RoR2 now), and my redmine instance to organize that.
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.
