Ruby Where to Start

Ok, so I'm an iOS developer and have produced several apps. I want to start learning ruby but am unsure where to start. Obviously, I know what a variable, array, etc are, so I don't want to waste my time learning those things.

What course should I start with?

1 Answer

I'd say at least do the Ruby Foundations course with the videos sped up to 1.75. I know you don't want to learn about those things but the syntax is slighty different. I think the time you'd probably waste looking up syntax could be the time spent going through the foundations course with the speed at 1.75

OK, thanks for the reply. After that, where should I go next? I have the skills of a programmer, so I would like to be up to speed as soon as possible with Ruby.
