All You Need to Know, and Nothing You Don't, to Create Ruby Programs, Gems, and Web Apps

Programmers love Ruby for its elegance, power, and flexibility: that's why it was chosen for the Ruby on Rails framework that launched websites from Shopify to Coinbase.

You'll love Ruby too, but you don't need to learn "everything" about it, just how to use it efficiently to solve real problems. In Learn Enough Ruby to Be Dangerous, renowned instructor Michael Hartl teaches the concepts, skills, and approaches you need to be professionally productive in both general-purpose programming and bning web app development.

Even if you're new to programming, Hartl helps you quickly build technical sophistication and master the lore you need to succeed. You'll gain a solid understanding of object-oriented and functional programming, develop and publish a self-contained Ruby package (a gem), and use your gem to build and deploy a dynamic web app with the Sinatra framework. Focused exercises help you internalize what matters, without wasting on details pros don't care about. Soon, it'll be like you were born knowing this stuffand you'll be suddenly, seriously dangerous.
