Ruby Off The Rails - Ep. 1 -- Zero to Ruby -- Pt. 2

Here’s the second installment, briefly covering installing RVM and an approachable text editor (Sublime Text 2). I advocate for focusing learning on one area at a time which means learn Ruby rather than starting to learn Ruby and VIM at the same time. (Learn VIM or EMACS once you’re further along with the language itself and see it as a long term investment in your productivity and happiness as a code crafter).

Ruby Off The Rails - Ep. 1 -- Zero to Ruby -- Pt. 1

Ruby Off The Rails is a new series of screencasts that I will be publishing. The first cluster of videos will address the problem of getting started with Ruby development by using a virtual installation of Ubuntu Linux running inside Virtualbox. It’s simpler than it sounds and it preserves the integrity of your everyday system. Here’s the first installment, enjoy! (I recommend opening the video for fullscreen display to better view the text)
