An Introduction to the Ruby Programming Language

Organizing Committee:


Course would be an introduction to Ruby for people familar with basic programming concepts. We will cover the basics of OOP, iterators, data structures, mixins, closures, etc. Course will involve both instruction and workshop. A laptop with Ruby 1.9.2 installed is necessary. Additionally please bring either paper or digital copy of Programming Ruby 1.9

Ruby is a general purpose object oriented language, dynamically typed and reflective with functional programming features. Available for more than 10 years, it was developed in Japan by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto and strongly influenced by Perl, Smalltalk, and Lisp.

Hi everyone! 

It has been a while! TPSNY site went through construction, and now TPSNY is trying to revitalize classes that had potentials. I can assist facilitating Ruby on Rails class if there are still interests. From what I heard, this class had only first meeting last year, right? Anyone want to lead/ teach an intro session?

Hey, sorry for the silence! I'm not sure when the next time we'll be able to meet at the Public School will be, since as Gloria mentioned it seems they have limited availability of the space. I'm waiting to hear back from Jackson, who will be facilitating our class going forward, on when we can next use the space.

Hi all, are we going to be meeting this week? I am surely looking forward to it.

That aside, my friend is teaching a course on Ruby through the School of Webcraft (funded by Mozilla). If you are interested I encourage you join. You can review the class here:

Also I found this awesome resource from out of the Boulder, CO Ruby scene:

For those of you still craving some git resources I found two good ones:



Look forward to sharing on the google group!


great potential that is.
