I’ve talked with people several times on how to get started on testing, test automation and Ruby, so I’ve decided to document it. It is mostly influenced by how I have learned it. It was years ago, so other resources might be available now.


Both books are short but highly recommended.


  • Everyday Scripting with Ruby by Brian Marick - highly recommended.
  • Programming Ruby by Dave Thomas, with Chad Fowler and Andy Hunt - I have probably read the first or the second edition, or both. A very good introduction to the language.
