Book Description – The Ruby Programming Language

The Ruby Programming Language – This book starts with a basic introduction to the language and then delves into it from the ground up, covering everything from lexical and syntactic structure to datatypes, expressions, and statements, as well as methods, blocks, lambdas, closures, classes, and modules.

The book also contains a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the Ruby platform’s rich API, illustrating Ruby’s features for text processing, arithmetic manipulation, collections, input/output, networking, and concurrency with heavily-commented example code. Ruby’s metaprogramming features are given their own chapter.

The Ruby Programming Language is a definitive text that does not have the formality of a language specification. It’s aimed at experienced programmers who are new to Ruby, as well as current Ruby programmers who want to expand their knowledge and command of the language.

This is a guide to help you figure out what you’re looking for. It is not so much a book that teaches as it is a book that describes Ruby in minute detail. You should be fine if you already know another programming language or Ruby (as long as you don’t fall asleep or only use it for the parts you need). If you’re just getting started, you should opt for a more gentle beginning, which this is not. There are no workouts or hand-holding involved. The author assumes you know how to program and are well-versed in programming vocabulary and norms.
