| + 389948 [waynefb eart] I'll tell you what has helped me the most (and this may not be the solution for you). I've been using another language for misc projects at work. I've been reading and even took an on-line Ruby course to get up to speed. But even the class projects didn't help me as much as having an actual project to work on. It's one thing, as you're finding out, to go through tutorials, but an entirely different thing to have to work out the solution using Ruby. In many cases, I knew how I would attack the problem. What I really needed to understand was how do I do it using an object oriented language, something I wasn't use to, and what conventions I Ruby used vs. what I was use to using. But my own projects really helped me understand some of the basics much better than anything else.
