Hello everyone, week of October 18-22 was ups and downs. Tears, tears, and more tears because I was still having trouble with the coding language in Ruby(Codecademy) and how it applies in real life. As a former CPS teacher I had tools to use in class whether it was classroom management, how to speak, how to facilitate and how to execute the curriculum to my students. In this IT world I am having a difficult time learning what first_prisms, Blocks, Procs, Lambdas mean. Interpolation was another one!
Towards the end of the week I began another lesson called "Object-Oriented Programming" which was interesting and fun. Here's a syntax I learned in Ruby that describes @ symbol before a variable to signify that it is an instance variable.
class Person def initialize(name) @name = name end end matz = Person.new("Yukihiro")
Another syntax I learned was that the attributes in a parameter correspond to what makes up a vehicle, see example below.
class Car def initialize(make, model) @make = make @model = model end end Kitt = Car.new("Pontiac", "Trans Am")
