Anyone here do any programming/coding? I jumped headfirst into learning Ruby on Rails today and was wondering if anyone had any advice for someone who's never done any coding at all (beyond visual basic for AOL chatroom punters/kickers and mp3 players in the 90's). I was told that I needed to know java and html5 before learning ruby... but I got so excited about learning to code that I kind of ignored that advice. I know a bit of html5 but not enough to claim any sort of familiarity with it or anything. My goal is to help develop web and mobile apps. Been looking at these sites: http://www.buildingwebapps.com/learningrails http://stackoverflow.com/questions/55574/learning-ruby-on-rails http://tryruby.org/levels/1/challenges/0 But I heard that trying to learn from different sources can confuse noob programmers so I bought this book- http://pine.fm/LearnToProgram/ and will be using it as my starting point. Trying to be more useful at work.. right now I do sales, market research, and social media and I want to be more.
