Ruby

The design tutorials were frustrating because I felt like I was really behind on everything that had happened in regards to topography, font, layout, color scheme, etc. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator have new features and shortcuts that I have to really learn from the beginning. JavaScript was also getting me nowhere. I couldn’t wrap my head around the code involved in making a simple button work on a website.

That’s when I came across the language Ruby on Rails. This was my first experience with it, to get a feel for it:

The tutorial is made in such an easy and fun way, with a great interface, that I got really excited about it! I felt like it was simple and similar to English so it was easy for my head to grasp the concepts.

Reading this guy’s blog helped me a lot:

He breaks down his journey and process through learning Ruby on Rails and makes it sound so feasible and realistic. He provides great resources like the above TryRuby link, as well as Michael Hartl’s Ruby on Rails guide.
