Hackety Hack


This looks interesting. It’s a kid focused tutorial on programing ruby. It’s on my list to learn a bit about ruby. If you’ve played with this, let me know what you think in the comments! – Link

    It’s by a guy called “why”, who’s kind of a legend in Ruby circles. He wrote/is writing Why’s Poignant Guide To Ruby, a truly weird introductory text. And he coded tryruby.hobix.com, an excellent interactive Ruby primer.

    Thanx, maybe it’s useful for me.

    Color me impressed. I’ve never tried Ruby before; this has made me want to start.

    I would love to introduce my kids to this (LOGO isn’t really cutting it), but we’re tenaciously Mac-based in this house. Anyone know of anything along these lines for the Mac?

    I’m a big fan. I’ve done some coding before, and I’ve hear of Ruby and Ruby on Rails, but I never thought I’d get around to learning it. I’ve zipped through the first few lessons, and I’ll definitely be finishing it up this weekend.

    Mac and Linux versions are expected within a month.

  7. dogzilla says:

    Linux version is out. Mac version appears to be on indefinite hold. In fact, there’s been no activity or communication from the developer in 6 weeks or so, either on his own boards or in his code repository.

    So I’ll repeat my previous question: anyone know of any other ruby-based tools on the mac for teaching kids programming? Books, anything like that?
