This site is a preview of the curriculum for our Summer 2018 bootcamp in Burlington, Vermont. As we continue our preparation, courses and lessons will appear and disappear; we will rename, rearrange, clarify, and obfuscate as needed... Please consider this a work in progress and keep checking in.
Learn to Code with Ruby:
Extra Fun Ruby Stuff
We've gone over the basics, but Ruby has lots of other language features. Here's a quick overview, with links to more info about them.
Iterators are special loops that act on all the items in a collection.
Blocks are like a cross between functions and methods. They allow Ruby to express many powerful algorithms in a compact writing style.
Symbols are like strings that start with a colon, and they're used all over the place.
Chaining is a compact way to express a chain of events. Properly executed, chaining turns Ruby from prose into poetry.
