Ruby is a currently popular programming language that is powerful and
easy to learn. It supports several major programming techniques:
imperative, functional, and object-oriented programming. It has an
active community and a large library of components that make it easy to
build on the work of others and share your own work. Ruby also makes it
easy to write tests to ensure your software works as intended and to
include documentation along with your programs.
Andrew Pam will introduce the Ruby programming language, show the basic
syntax and features, and demonstrate how you can get started with Ruby.
Andrew has over thirty years experience in the computer industry and is
currently president of LUV. He is an active advocate of Free and Open
Source software and free speech rights, and is currently developing a
software-as-a-service web application using Ruby on Rails.
There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux
installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop
if you need help with a particular issue.
LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the
Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue and VPAC for hosting.
