Ryan Cordell at ProfHacker has a post titled “Ruby for Humanists” that points readers to two projects designed to teach beginning programmers Ruby basics. I’m humbled that he’s included The Rubyist Historian among his projects for learning Ruby. He also points to a free, cross-platform program called Hackety Hack, which offers interactive lessons for teaching programming basics.
