@ahealthydesign @amilum reading a pretty good into to ruby guide. free!

Like to write code in a functional style a la Haskell or Scheme? That's cool; Ruby does that. Really dig object orientation like Java or Smalltalk? No problem; Ruby handles that, too. Prefer to use a procedural (a.k.a. imperative) style like Forth or Ada? Ruby can "get its procedure on" as good as any other language! Don't know what any of those mean but just really want to program? Excellent! Ruby is a multi-paradigm language because it doesn't constrain to a single programming mindset; you can use any of the aforementioned programming paradigms with no problems in Ruby. You can pick the one you prefer (or the easiest for you to learn) and go with it: Ruby doesn't mind. Unlike some other languages, it doesn't get jealous and give you "errors" if you break it off with objects and decide to go steady with closures instead.
