Last year Eloy and I taught Ruby at the first ‘5 Talen in 5 Dagen’ summer course. In this course the students learn one programming language each day for five days in a row. Everyone was really satisfied with last year so we were invited again this year.
The day started with a short lecture about the who, what, and why of Ruby, followed by a whirlwind tour of the Ruby syntax. After lunch everyone got out their laptops and we worked through a number of exercises.
