I have made a short, inter-active tutorial demonstrating some basic techniques for writing SketchUp plugins in Ruby. It covers the workflow of editing, saving and loading a script using a simple example.
The tutorial does not cover learning the Ruby language, nor the SketchUp-Ruby API.
View the Tutorial and let me know what you think.
