I love wacky things (not sure if I love wacky people, but that’s another problem). I love programming. Oh, and I love books, too. Put the three together and you get: “I love wacky books about programming”.
It’s true! I love them! So I loved Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby. And so will you. Or maybe not.
I mean, here is a book about programming in Ruby with comics (I love comics) and a non-sense story (and I love stories, too!). With titles such as Floating Little Leaves of Code and The Leaf as a Status Symbol in Ambrose (not sure if I like those, but I can try!). Where the author demands that you Say aloud each of the parts of speech used below. Where he tells you that brackets in a Hash are like… a wooden pallet the word is sitting upon. Or handles.
Anyway, I liked it, and I hope you’ll like it too.
Did I mention the Elf with a Pet Ham? what about the Starmonkey?
