I just started to learn how to program in Ruby. It is a pretty cool language. You can get ruby from www.ruby-lang.org. You can see my code snippets on making widgets using fxRuby (fxRuby is downloaded seperatly from ruby, unless you get the one click installer, which installs everything). But first here is a hello world program written in Ruby:
puts "Hello, World! I am writing in the Ruby programming language"
