This class is designed for people with programming experience in another language or who have been introduced to Ruby through Rails and want to learn more Ruby.
In this class we will focus on learning the Ruby language through exploratory development and test-first teaching. Weekly homework assignments will provide hands on reinforcement of concepts on a regular basis. We will dive into Objects and Classes, cover Arrays, Hashes, Strings, Numbers, and Regular Expressions, and learn about Ruby's memory models.
After the language and syntax common patterns, you will learn how to do practical things like call the twitter API and print the results of a seach.
You will recieve the book 'The Well-Grounded Rubyist' by David Black, which will supplement the class instruction.
