Tim's nerd stuff


My learning journey consists of many tools. I started on Codecademy's Ruby path. I have also bought some books today. The first one is Learning to Program (3rd Edition) by Chris Pine, which you can also find free online, but I want the author to reap the rewards. I actually have the 1st and 2nd editions of this book which is on its 3rd now. As I said in previous posts, I have wanted to learn Ruby for a very long time.

The second book I bought was Programming Ruby 3.2 (5th Edition), which Chris Pine recommends as a follow-up to the Learning to Program book.

And finally, I needed something to help me learn Emacs so I bought Mastering Emacs by Mickey Petersen. This I can keep open as I try to figure out how to use Emacs.

I bought them all in digital format since they will be most useful opened up on my screen. The first two aren't actually in print yet. I may get print versions if I really enjoy them. I will start digging into them tonight, till then.

Cheers! Tim
