(playful music) - [Voiceover] Welcome to Ruby Essential Training. My name is Kevin Skoglund. I run a web development company called Nova Fabrica where we develop websites and web applications. In this course, we're going to learn to program using Ruby, the popular, object-oriented programming language. To begin with, we will examine the basic object types in Ruby, as well as the fundamentals of the language syntax. We will learn how object-oriented programming works, and I'll walk you through the steps to enable you to read and to write to files from your code.
Finally, we'll get practical, hands-on experience using Ruby by building a restaurant guide for managing your favorite restaurants. Now it doesn't matter if you're a beginner or if you have prior experience. We will cover all the fundamentals you need and many more advanced concepts as well, and if you're interested in website development, you will end with a solid foundation in Ruby that will make learning Ruby on Rails much easier. Let's get started learning how to program with Ruby.
