Learn To Program

Chris Pine’s book will teach you how to program using Ruby. You’ll learn to use your computer better, to get it to do what you want it to do.


Starting with small, simple one-line programs to calculate your age in seconds, you’ll see how to advance to fully structured, real programs. You’ll learn the same technology used to drive modern dynamic websites and large, professional applications.

When you program a computer, you have to “speak” in a language your computer understands: a programming language. There are lots and lots of different languages out there, and many of them are excellent. In this tutorial I chose to use my favorite programming language, Ruby.
