Learning Ruby with the Edgecase Ruby Koans Jump to Story

If you are new to Ruby and you want to take a large step down the path of Ruby enlightenment, then Ruby Koans is for you. It teaches some of the same things as TryRuby.org, but with the Koans you download a bunch of ruby files, and then run Rake. Each file contains tests you need to make pass, and as you code them up you inevitably learn more about Ruby and testing.
