Amazon FBA to Shopify Store – How We Got Started Part 3

Ruby, Ruby on Rails, PHP, javascript, C, C#, C++ its not French but it might as well be, I’ve tried to pick up programming languages before and it’s been a lot like dipping my toes in hot lava. Painful doesn’t describe the torture of reading “Practical Object Oriented Design in Ruby”. How in the world am I going to create an app for Shopify.

Straddling the fine line between  insanity, stupidity or genius I decide to take the plunge and learn what this means:

This my friends is Ruby, not the semi-precious gem stone, but a coding language that I come to find out is what Shopify was created with. Same with Twitter and Airbnb. So I thought if it was good enough for them its gotta be good enough for me. Yes! I have my language. Now what?

How am I going to learn this thing, and where am I going to type this mess? I need a book or video or something a kind soul has put together to explain to a thick headed Lithuanian like myself how to understand this language that looks a lot like hieroglyphics to me.

After many stops and starts I find my savior, in the form of a book, and lucky for me it’s free. From the title of the book I’m hoping the author has a sense of humor, its “Learn Ruby the Hard Way“. This process is going to be hard enough that I need a smile on my face while the tears escape from my eyes. I open the book and in a couple paragraphs I start to smile and even chuckle ever so slightly. Ok, this isn’t going to be too awfully bad. I might even like it a little, we’ll have to see.
