[23:42:23] myztic: 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?
[23:44:28] myztic: dorei: I thought about getting The Ruby Programming Language
[23:44:42] myztic: dorei: that is the one you mean I guess :)
[23:46:05] myztic: how "outdated" is ruby 1.8 by now (how valid is documentation for 1.8 these days) ?
[23:46:37] myztic: or rather 1.9
[23:46:50] myztic: the one coauthored by matz covers 1.9, it was published in 2008
[23:47:18] myztic: time for a second edition me thinks
[23:48:26] myztic: jhass: but basically the thinks will still all work
[23:48:40] myztic: s/thinks/things
[23:50:28] myztic: yeah ruby seems to be under heavy development
[23:50:37] myztic: still the case or have things slowed down a bit
[23:54:15] myztic: Is matz leading the cause? :)
[23:54:47] myztic: he's a mormon?! :D

[11:06:08] myztic: 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)
[11:06:21] myztic: because I could hack it together with bash and c, but since I want to learn ruby anyways
[11:07:03] myztic: 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?
[11:07:50] myztic: 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
[11:11:14] myztic: don't see the problem
[11:11:33] myztic: that's basic syntax, normally not that hard to get your head around relatively quickly

[00:43:50] myztic: good learning resources for ruby? https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/ looks quite promising, or should I buy a book? Suggestions?
[00:51:50] myztic: Ox0dea: thanks
[00:52:17] myztic: how important is it to have documentation for the current version? can I use something that was written fro version 1.8.2-15 or will the difference to now be massive?
[00:52:25] myztic: s/fro/for
[00:53:55] myztic: Ox0dea: no :D
[00:54:00] myztic: I currently have ruby 2.1.7p400 installed
[00:55:16] myztic: Ox0dea: I do now
[00:55:30] myztic: awesome, thanks :)
[00:56:21] myztic: Ox0dea: So I will use Learn to Program, Pine; Will use ri tool, and the maybe some other stuff from the interwebs
[00:56:25] myztic: but that's the plan :)
[00:56:34] myztic: s/the/then
