In my previous article Getting started with Ruby – Part 3 I started with Collections and covered basics of Ranges & Arrays. Like I mentioned towards the end of the article (in case you couldn’t manage to reach the end) I will start with one of the most commonly used Collection objects in Ruby, namely Hashes.
Hi again, this is part 2 of my series of articles to help beginners getting started with the Ruby programming language. At this point of time I would like to quote the definition of Ruby from the Ruby-Lang official website.
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.
I know I had already quoted Ruby’s definition from wikipedia in my previous article ‘Getting started with Ruby – Part 1‘, but that was more of a technical definition. Here I wanted to draw your attention to Yukihiro Matsumoto‘s, popularly known as Matz’s philosophy behind creating Ruby, which is making programming as simple & natural as humanely possible. We will be witnessing that very soon.
