This is a true beginner class. If you've read through a ruby book before then this class is not for you. NO knowledge of ruby or how to program is required.
Things we will cover in class:
1) Getting Started Programming Ruby
2) How to use basic ruby objects, string, array, hash, and more
3) Useful Applications to build with Ruby
You will need to bring a computer to class as there will be hands on material. No software installation is required before the class.
