Ruby is a currently popular programming language that is powerful and
easy to learn. It supports several major programming techniques:
imperative, functional, and object-oriented programming. It is open
source and available for free on Windows, MacOS and Linux. It has an
active community and a large library of components that make it easy to
build on the work of others and share your own work. Ruby also makes it
easy to write tests to ensure your software works as intended and to
include documentation along with your programs.

This class will get you started with obtaining and installing Ruby, the
basic syntax and features of the Ruby programming language, how to
write, document and test simple programs, and how to find and use Ruby
Gems – components created by other programmers.

Target Audience:

  • People with no programming experience who want to learn to program
    using Ruby
  • People with knowledge of other programming languages who want to learn
  • People who would like to learn Web App development using Rails and
    need basic Ruby skills
