Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Birth date analysis, part of Ruby: Classes and Modules.
- [Instructor] It's time for a quick challenge…to see what we've learned about dates and times.…We're going to do a challenge called birthdate analysis.…The idea is that we're going to ask a user…for the year, month, and date of their birth,…and then we're going to analyze it.…We're going to report back to them some information.…We're going to tell them the day of the week…that they were born,…so we'll tell them it was a Thursday, it was a Friday,…it was a Sunday.…And we'll tell them the day of the year as a number.…It was the 200th day of the year, let's say.…Or the week of the year as a number.…It was the seventh week of the year.…
And whether or not it was a leap year or not.…That's it.…So just very simple.…We're going to ask them for their information,…we're going to analyze it…and report back with some basic information…about their birthdate.…Let me demonstrate what the final product…ought to look like.…So I've got my birthdate analysis program here.…Note that there are no classes for this one.…I've called the folder birthdate_analysis…
