I recently just finished my Nanodegree from Udacity, but I wanted to keep busy so I am learning Ruby. I am not sure if I want to go all in on Ruby or just want some exposure to it.
They say you learn the best, when you teach what you've learn. Every week, I will "teach" through blog posts to not only help someone else, but also reiterate what I'm learning.
I want to teach not only the syntax, but also show the application. One thing I struggled with when learning programming languages, is learning the syntax but not having any clue how to apply this when developing.
- According to the Ruby website, it's a: dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write
In others words: You can use Ruby like any other general-purpose scripting language
- Web applications, web servers, system utilities, database work, backups, parsing, even biology and medicine.
- Ruby is the Programming Language
- Ruby on Rails is a web-application framework that is implemented in Ruby.
