Ruby is a very powerful language for web and software development. During this course, you can explore how to code in Ruby and the basic building blocks of a Ruby web application. Learn to install and configure Ruby, create and run a simple Ruby app, and operate Interactive Ruby (IRB). Recognize key Ruby identifiers, such as variables and constants. Use string, numeric, and Boolean values. Apply comments and structure to your Ruby programs, along with arithmetic and string operators, to manipulate variables. Use Ruby methods to get user input and format output to the console. Add flow control, logical operators, blocks, procs, and lambdas. Conclude by identifying how variable scope and namespaces work in Ruby.
