Entry Level Ruby Workshop

1/5/2013 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM



Ask any software developer how they first learned to program. Maybe at some point they read books or attended classes, but ultimately they had to learn by trial and error: by typing in some code and seeing what happened. You learn your first programming language by playing with code, just like you learned your first spoken language by playing with sounds.

In this workshop you'll work with some Ruby code that draws an image on the screen. Your job is to change the image by changing the code. The goal is to give everyone first-hand experience with variables, loops, branches, and the command line. You'll figure it out faster than we can explain it, so let's get started.

Light food, snacks, and refreshments will be provided.

NOTE: Please bring a computer or be ready to share. If it has Windows, please download and install Ruby from before the workshop.

DAVINCI CODERS: For anyone wanting to know more about DaVinci Coders, this is a great way to get started. Please plan to join us for this remarkable event... and the best part, it's FREE.
