Note: If you prefer to learn Ruby interactively, you may be interested in my two Ruby programming video courses available on Udemy. These are:

- Ruby Programming For Beginners

This is an entry level course for complete beginners or programmers with no previous knowledge of Ruby.


- Expert Ruby Programming - ten steps to mastery

This is a more advanced course, based on The Book Of Ruby, that aims to take your Ruby skills to a higher level.


The Book Of Ruby (free edition) is a free tutorial to the Ruby language. It contains 425 pages in 20 chapters. It is provided in the form of a PDF document in which each chapter is accompanied by ready-to-run source code for all the examples. There is also an Introduction which explains how to use the source code in Ruby In Steel or any other editor/IDE of your choice plus appendices and an index.

Permissions: You may copy or distribute the text and programs of The Book Of Ruby (free edition) but you may not modify them without prior consent of the author nor may you distribute the eBook in any form other than that in which it is provided. You may not print the text for redistribution. You may, however, print the chapters for your own personal use. In no circumstances may you make a charge for The Book Of Ruby or for any of its component parts.

The Little Book Of Ruby: Note that The Book Of Ruby is an in-depth guide to Ruby. For a much simpler guide to the principal features of the Ruby language, we also have the free eBook, The Little Book Of Ruby.
