Just finished my LA Ruby Conf talk on teaching Ruby to kids. Here are a few further resources:
- Shoes – a simple way to create desktop applications in Ruby. Cross-platform, pure awesome. (code on github)
- Hackety Hack – built on Shoes, this is a toolkit specifically for learning how to program.
- Small Ruby – learn to program for the smaller set – think turtle drawing. Coming soon.
- PDF version of the slides (exactly the same as slides below)
