This is an excellent course for the intermediate Rubyist. If you know some rails, but want to learn more about Ruby then this is the course for you. I especially found the section on modules to be helpful to me. I have read similar materials several times, but until you can practice it hands on, it just didn't stick. Tommy

Even though I've been using Ruby for about a year now, there were some nice reminders and still quite a bit to learn. I look forward to Ruby Bits 2.

This course is (as any other courses) awesome for someone who want to refresh his/her ruby knowledge or add new knowledge. And for someone new to programming, you might find difficulty in level 5: Modules. However, this course will give you a good intro to ruby. Can't wait for the second part.

Just when you think you have read all the docs and have it all straight. Gregg an co have a way of always introducing something new to our tech palette. Thanks for the excellent service.

This course did a great job of filling in gaps of knowledge that I had from doing a lot of the rails-specific courses. I feel like I have a much better understanding of basic ruby features and syntax now. Thanks!

This course would be more beneficial to those who have used Ruby to some extent. To appreciate, you need to go though some of the common code styles. And then you will see that the beauty lies in how well all these common styles are knit together by the codeschool team. For me, it was more of a revision of these styles and I felt it was organized well in terms of coverage area.

I'm getting ready for a code test interview next week, and I haven't done any hardcore Ruby code for months. This course is exactly what I needed! Not only a great refresher on some of the basics of Ruby, it has also opened my mind to thinking more philosophically about code structure. The emphasis on readability is much appreciated. Also, learned some great aspects of ActiveSupport that I didn't know before!

Even if you are already familiar with Ruby there are enough "bits" in this course that will help you refactor your code to make it nicer and more readable. I definitely got some really good "aha" moments out of it.

Every serious Rubyist should take this course seriously! Looking forward to "Ruby Bits - Part II" to cover meta-programming in Ruby.
