I know about http://ruby-community.com/pages/links I don't know if that makes sense, but what I want is a "traditional programming book" about ruby, I only seem to find lightweight tutorials, weird reference material and the like is there no concise well written proper book?
how fast (take a guess, do know some other languages but only the very basics) would I be up to speed to write in ruby the most basic programmes (e.g. database / calculation (what others would do in spreadsheets), very simple scripts for day-to-day tasks)
because I could hack it together with bash and c, but since I want to learn ruby anyways
I kind of thought one day, really spending it on learning ruby should be sufficient to write such basic things, or is there some big differences in general concept you first have get your head around or something like that?
I know ruby is kind of a rabbit hole, I am obviously not talking about calling myself a good ruby programmer, I know that will take time and experience
