Nicely done.

Would have liked to see how the debugger works though.

Thanks for the quick start tutorial.

Very well done. Even with a newer version of Eclipse installed I was able to follow along and produce the expected results.

Nice simple intro. I was looking to use eclipse with ruby and now I have a starting point. I would like to see more Ruby or PHP project management with Eclipse tutorials.

Very good tutorial, my first introduction to Ruby and I found this very useful.

Thank you for your video!

I am from Germany. I started to learn ruby on rails last Monday. I expired ruby a bit and run some examples as ruby on rails.

Now I am looking for a professional environment.

Nice tutorial, thanks!

One moment - when you first time create ruby project, you should have already istalled ruby, or it will use the jruby interpreter.

Also, some gems may be installed at first time run.

Great job on the video, Robert! It's clear, concise and useful - exactly how a ShowMeDo video should be.

Ruby's an awesome language and in your video you've managed to prove that it also has a rock-solid IDE to go along with it.

Thanks for this great contribution to ShowMeDo.



Robert - it is great to finally get this video published :-) Thank you for uploading it.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Robert
