I've gotten through most of the well-known tutorials out there. Like others have said, I started learning the most when I just bit the bullet and began building my own project. I've incorporated a good bit of functionality into my project, but I have this sneaking suspicion that the only reason I've gotten as far as I have is because of the AMAZING RUBY Community out there. If there weren't so many gems, I'd still be back at square 1. The problem is: I don't understand the gems I'm incorporating.
How can I learn to read the gems and understand them?
