    1. I ahem know the person who wrote this, so just so you know But I think it s a great book, and I know how much time, thought, and effort he put into it I served as a guinea pig of sorts through all the drafts and earlier versions I was a non programmer to begin with, and Chris actually tried to teach me to program a couple of other times before he started writing the book The book worked I don t program by myself these days, but I got enough understanding from the book to be able to listen to Chr [...]

    2. What can I say I wrote a Chris Pine Appreciation Post here marydickson chris pine app This is a great teaching companion For one, the book has great examples and challenge problems they re fun, whimsical, not too easy or difficult, and reinforce key ideas from the chapters What s , they re the type of programing challenges that a advanced student could take and build on make it better, make it live on the web, etc I also especially admire the way he introduces and teaches recursive programming [...]

    3. I wish I had read this earlier in my career Absolutely recommended for anyone getting started with programming or anyone who thinks maybe they could be you won t be intimidated by this book It truly is for beginners and it lays an excellent foundation to build on.

    4. I initially loved this when I first discovered it It seemed like a gentle and carefully crafted introduction to programming with Ruby The examples were thoughtfully done, if sometimes a little humorously silly, and the text surrounding them carefully transitioned from concept to concept.So I decided to use it to teach a class of new programming students Their reactions were quite a bit mixed Most couldn t handle actually reading all the text, not necessarily a fault of the book itself, but it w [...]

    5. Rather lazily written intro to programming through ruby Bizarre examples and sample code that one gets bored of sorting through.Beginners won t find it very difficult, but there isn t enough time spent on flow control or classes or basic OOP concepts for it to be that useful.

    6. Verme ahora leyendo este libro explicar a lo mal que me va con mi proyecto fin de carrera, claro Si tras 4 a os en Ingenier a Inform tica a n necesito leer eso, tengo definitivamente serios problemas Todo parti de un pedido que iba a hacer a Estaba echando un vistazo al cat logo de The Pragmatic Bookshelf, que son unos libros muy chulos de programaci n, y me detuve en ste en gran parte porque sal a fruta en la portada Le la descripci n y me llam la atenci n la parte en la que hablaba del autor C [...]

    7. The best tutorial print or electronic I ve found for beginning coders Clear explanations for those without a tech background and practical application of ideas with exercises that include how you could do it and how I the author would do it that demonstrate better best practices The book is humorous, entertaining, and engaging such that it never overwhelmed me as a student Not only does the book cover the basic science of code, it also gives the reader a sense of how code can be beautiful, uniqu [...]

    8. Despu s de leer el tutorial gratuito en l nea del cual realic una traducci n disponible en goo 3UcZi , quede realmente complacido por el acertado manejo de la complejidad que se da al tratar los conceptos de cda cap tulo Encontr en el libro varios ejercicios y temas que complementan el tutorial en temas de manejo de archivos Aunque algunos de los ltimos problemas sugeridos son bastante desafiantes y probablemente no son aptos para personas que tengan con ste libro su primer contacto con la progr [...]

    9. This is a great book for anyone with no prior programming experience If you re ambitious, this is a great weekend project Chris Pine really knows how to answer the questions anyone brand new to programming is wanting to ask.The work is very easy and the hand holding really helps you get a good grasp on the basic concepts or programming, as well as the Ruby language.Look at this as a bare bones startup to your learning Finish this book, and then decide if you want to be a programmer, as well as i [...]

    10. A good introduction to Ruby Touches on a lot of basic functionality and offers interesting and humorous challenges to practice programming If you re looking to get started with Ruby, this book is a good jumping off point without too much intimidation As an added perk, he has it available online to read for free But you ll have to work out the answers to the challenges yourself because those are only offered in the print edition But that s ok As Chris Pine himself so aptly put it, Programming isn [...]

    11. Excellent book for any newbie Rubyist No previous experience required The best part in my opinion is the answer key that provides two versions of scripts One that the reader could write with the knowledge they ve read from the book thus far and another version which the author as an experienced programmer would write The author s version motivates me by reminding me how much is there to learn ahead of me.

    12. Really good for a solid understanding of basic Ruby programming I highly recommend everything up to Chapter 9 or 10 If you are new to programming in it s entirety, I don t think he does a great job explaining what lambdas or procs are and why they re useful It s kind of a weird concept to wrap your head around But everything else was very well written and the exercises were easy to understand and helped build the fundamentals.

    13. Great intro book to programming in general with a Ruby focus I loved the author s tone and writing style Chapter 9 10 seemed to take a pretty big jump and I found myself struggling to understand the concepts though Overall great intro book, gets you writing some code and feeling the sense of excitement at making some things happen with programming.

    14. I can t say enough good things about this book, about the way it teaches programming, the examples it gives, the approach it takes It made programming about solving puzzles, word problems and challenges not about crunching numbers I wish there were in this series, as I have yet to find advanced books that follow the same approach.

    15. It s an ideal book to start with, especially when we are talking about Ruby However, this book is an introduction type, so be ready to read a couple of others for getting the ground.I found it a bit too easy for me, but it is so well written that I just couldn t put it aside.

    16. It never occurred to me that a book on programming for beginners could be as approachable and engaging as this one is Its one of the first two textbooks we use at Ada Developers Academy Highly recommended.

    17. A very non programmer friendly introduction to the Ruby programming language, as well as some common programming concepts However, you d certainly need to read through other material because this is just the tip of the Ruby iceberg.

    18. Used this book to help a friend learn to code Reminds me of the Learning Perl series Good examples of Ruby Good explanations of basic constructs Not the greatest to teach some of the core CS theories.

    19. An excellent introduction to programming, through Ruby It s concise, so you have to unpack concepts, but he does a great job of introducing things and covering related ground, while sticking to a single topic at a time.

    20. One of my all time favorite books to recommend to any student or person who is getting started with programming.

    21. Great quick intro to Rails The book focusses on the ruby fundamentals and does a great job with that
