That's a very broad question with many, many answers. It might be easier 
for the list members to respond if you narrow down your question a bit 
and explain what you already know about Ruby and "other languages". 
Also, have you looked at the links on www.ruby-lang.org? There's a lot 
of good information on that site.

Good luck!
