Ruby Foundations or Ruby Basic first?

Which one would you recommend starting first to learn Ruby?

Basic, Id say from looking at the content it seems like a better start. Also it´s in a earlier stage of Ruby track.

I would recommend Ruby Basics first and then you can move on to Ruby Foundations. If you look at the Rails Development Track, Treehouse has those classes in that order. Ruby Basics covers the absolute foundation and the Ruby Foundations will review those and continue to build on those.

The best option is to take the Rails Track in it's entirety! Enjoy!
