- Control structures (loops and if statements)

- Arrays and how to use them

- Hashes

- Ruby method definitions

- Using blocks

- Classes and objects in Ruby

- Attribute specifiers

- Implementing inheritance

- Method access in Ruby

Ruby is is both unique and elegant. This course will get you started with Ruby programming quickly and easily. The course is broken into simple digestible steps. We take a hands-on "learn by doing" approach and our focus is to make you productive right from go!

This course is for newbie programmers or developers who want to get up to speed with the most popular language of the moment.

The course is suitable for anyone who has some programming knowledge, but no knowledge of the Ruby language. Ruby is fun to learn, and a very powerful tool for any serious programmer. I hope you join us.
