I picked up the metasploit book. When it teaches to learn how to write an exploit, it advised that knowing Ruby is a must. So I grabbed a book on ruby, and also found http://www.tryruby.org
. It's an online interface that gives you the basics of Ruby and how to use it in a 15 minute run down. I found it to be a great introduction to the language.
Thought I'd post it incase others were looking to begin as well.
Mods: I searched for this, but was unable to see if this had been posted before, if it has, I will take myself outside and give myself a good talking to.
I had a budgie once..
He was blue..
He said it was cause he was lonely.
