Ruby module R102
Hello Ruby Objects
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module R102. This module is presented on Private Courses and Specially Run Courses only

Ruby is a true OO language - perhaps the first true OO scripting language where EVERYTHING is an object. We'll introduce you to Ruby, the OO concept, and how the two melt together to give you a fast and efficient way of developing flexible code in applications from system admin through web database frameworks, and also to easily upgrade and maintain them as your requirements grow.

In almost every appication, you'll be writing a number of pieces of code that use the same data type. It's tempting initially to write all the detail of the individual fields and attributes of the data into a main program - especially if the application's not very long and you're in a hurry:   fh ...

When you're learning a programming language - or to program - your text / tutor will almost inevitably start with "Hello World" - a program to display a string of text. That's chosen as the first example as it shows you how to enter and store you program, it shows you any steps necessary to convert ...
4009Clear, concise examples - Ruby classes and objects.
Finding clear, concise examples of how to perform a simple programming task can be surprisingly difficult. "I just want a [Rails] model that doesn't actually use a database table" was an example yesterday. Such shouldn't be difficult, but authors tend to write a simple example and then decide "While ...
2603Ruby objects - a primer
If you're new to Ruby, but familiar with Object Oriented Programming, you might like to take a quick look at the example that I wrote during yesterday's course which shows how all the major OO elements are implemented in Ruby. The sample source is [here]. Here are some of the key facts: • Classes ...
2287Learning to program in Ruby - examples of the programming basics
We so often overlook the basics of programming, and yet they are so fundamental to good code - understanding things like how widely variables can be seen (also known as variable scope), what happens when you divide two numbers (do you get a decimal result or is the remainder thrown away), and how do ...
