This is the first post, named “Ruby”, in a series of “Ultimate List of … Resources”. I’m going to compose several lists for different topics I encounter during my development work. To start, I begin with Ruby. Later, I will add “Ultimate Lists” about Ruby on Rails, Subversion, AJAX and some other topics.

Feel free to let me know if I missed an important resource. I’m also open to suggestions about other “Ultimate Lists”.

For now, you’ll have to settle for the “Ultimate List of Ruby Resources”.
