    Great! As always, there was a sense of complete freedom to work on whatever one chose, and there was also a structured group activity for those who wanted it.

    Any opinions on Chris Pine's Learn to Program book, or Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby's approach to teaching Ruby?

    Also, anyone familiar with Salesforce.com's Apex language?

      I love Chris Pine's Learn to Program! For someone like me w/ no previous experience it was really accessible. The general tone is encouraging and helpful.

      I also recommend Peter Cooper's Beginning Ruby which might be good to run through after Pine. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com...­. You can also find the pdf online for free.
