Two great newbie resources made my attention-width this morning:
1) Learn to Program (using Ruby), by Chris Pine. There are tons of books out there that assume you know how to program already and so the title and subject end up being Learn to Program XXXX, but what about Newbies? Chris steps in and decided to use Ruby as the base. His book is due soon as well, which he assures me is even funnier.
2) Rails Weenie. Hey, that’s me! “Sign up and you start off with five points. Offer up points for your questions. The harder the question, the more points you wager.”
