Ruby Programming Course Overview

Ruby is a high level Interpreted, Object Oriented, rapid development language deployed in many scenarios in the modern world.

This Ruby Programming course is designed to give delegates the knowledge to develop and maintain Ruby applications.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Declare variables and initialise them
  • Construct expressions with arithmetic, logical and relational operators
  • Use iterative type statements
  • Use conditional statements
  • Read/write files
  • Manipulate text using regular expression
  • Use and create Ruby Objects
  • Use built-in library functions

Who will the Course Benefit?

Developers who are required to write, maintain and test Ruby applications. This is an ideal course for anyone who wants to be able to make sense of code, if not actually to produce it.

Course Objectives

This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to produce simple, object oriented Ruby applications that exploit all core elements of the language to solve business problems.

Requirements

Familiarisation with programming concepts is useful. This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the Introduction to Programming course.
