Learning Ruby Through Ruby Koans Online

As you’ve probably noticed, I talk a lot about front-end development on here. Recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s about time I round out my skill set with a robust back-end language to balance things out. Originally, I thought about going back to PHP since I’ve already spent 4+ years developing in it. But PHP jobs are getting harder to find around here and I figured that I could challenge myself by attempting to master a new language that I don’t have much experience in: Ruby.

To help my along my journey, I’ll be walking through Ruby Koans Online. Ruby Koans is a series of TDD-driven code katas designed to help you learn Ruby. Each week, I hope to go through a new koan and t hen write about it here. I highly encourage you to check out the Ruby Koans Online site and follow along with me.
