I was surprised to see on SharpDevelop's site that it does support
IronRuby; but I don't see any docs or tutorials on using it there.
Generally though most people recommend using Ruby with a simple text editor
and a REPL like irb or pry, at least when you're just starting out.

Actually that tends to be a common recommendation for when you start out
with many programming languages, but I think there's a greater concensus in
the Ruby community not to rely on IDEs. Ruby is much more dynamic than C#,
so it's pretty much impossible for an IDE to "understand" the code the way
it understands more static languages. For instance, an IDE can't ever know
all the methods an object can respond to, so completion is less robust
(although there are both IDEs and text editors that provide Ruby code
completion of varying quality).
