Workshop: Ruby - the power of dynamic programming
Curious about Ruby? Heard all the buzz about 'the agile language' and want to understand what the difference compared to languages like Java and C# really is? Want to try for yourself?
In this hand-on workshop, you will get to program in Ruby. The language basics and the dynamic parts will be analyzed and explained and you will get the opportunity to  experiment, while having guides at your service.

No previous Ruby experience is expected, but basic knowledge of an object-oriented language is expected.

Disclaimer: After learning a dynamic language, the languages you use on a daily basis may feel a bit constrained and dull. Neither Øredev, nor the presenter can be held responsible if that happens to any of the workshop attendees.
