New to Ruby

Posted 16 May 2009 - 11:55 AM

Can anyone recommend a good book or site to get started with Ruby and Rails development? I am entirely new to Ruby and Rails, but not OO development. I would like to learn how to build a Rails web application. Thank you.

The "Humble Ruby Book" is my personal tomb of all knowledge.

yes ruby is brilliant for making RPGs or any sort of game. You might want to look into a few libarys tho, i recommend Gosu.

i've used that to create a few games, and i have also managed with a network libary to convert one of these games to an online game, only 5 players but still it was online ;)
