Ruby is an object-oriented programming language that is capturing the attention of developers looking to make improvements in productivity while also looking to recapture the joy in programming. Based on languages like Perl, Smalltalk, Ada and borrowing other features from languages like Python, Lisp and Dylan, Ruby is an open source interpreted language that was initially developed as a script language. Developed in Japan ten years ago, today Ruby is heavily used in Japan and gathering steam in the US. In Ruby, everything is an object, which makes it very flexible and easy to extend. As a meta-programming language, Ruby allows programmers to focus on writing and assembling programs that write or manipulate other programs, thereby allowing developers to get code done in a shorter amount of time with fewer errors. This class presents the Ruby syntax as well as the power and capabilities of this highly object-oriented and interpreted programming environment. In addition to the basic language, you will learn Ruby's many libraries, database access with Ruby, graphical user interface packages and the Ruby framework for the Web: Ruby on Rails. Like all Intertech Training courses, this class heavily emphasizes hands-on learning. So throughout the week you will complete several exercises that demonstrate how to apply these technologies in the real world.
