Ruby Bits Part 2 Jump to Story

Lastly, over here at Code School, we recently released Ruby Bits Part 2. This course picks up where RubyBits 1 leaves off, and covers even more advanced Bits of Ruby, such as Blocks, Procs, Lambdas, Dynamic Classes and Methods, Missing Methods, and in the last two chapters we create a DSL together. If you’re not yet comfortable with Ruby metaprogramming, this is probably the most fun way to learn. And the first level is free if you want to just give it a try. Just head over to CodeSchool.com to give it a whirl.
