Hackety Hack, v1.0  

Hackety Hack just released their version 1.0. This is a downloadable interactive tutorial to learn programming, based around the Ruby programming language.

If you're a business guy and want to learn some programming so that you can better communicate with your technical counterparts, go ahead and download it (on Mac, Windows or Linux) and play with it. It's quick, fun, and light-hearted, and well worth some of your time.
