It's been similar for me, I've read several books about programming and it's really a good approach to learning.
By the way, I'm open to listen suggestions about good books to read.
Many of the books I've read are Ruby-specific, though currently I'm moving towards reading non-Ruby ones.
I also loved DHH books (Getting Real and Rework), but I read them a long time ago. They are not so much about coding, but more about business and getting your projects done.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
