Course description

Ruby for Beginners - Level 3 Course

The Ruby for Beginners - Level 3 Course teaches this dynamic, open source programming language. Ruby is a cross-platform, object-oriented programming language available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Unix, and many other operating systems, and is ideally suited to the development interactive applications and games. Ruby views everything it encounters and interacts with as an object and is an interpreted language, which means it is executed by an interpreter at run-time, allowing you to make changes to your Ruby scripts and then immediately run them without having to go through a compilation process, like so many other programming languages.

We start by demonstrating how to install the Windows version of Ruby and we progress slowly but surely by writing small programs that demonstrate each new concept or technique, moving on to more advanced programs usually in the form of an interesting game. The Ruby interpreter, together with the Gosu graphical gaming library and the Chipmunk physics engine, are available completely free of charge for all major platforms, and can be freely distributed.
