The Ruby programming language is perfect for beginners: easy to learn, powerful, and fun to use! But wouldn't it be more fun if you were learning with the help of some wizards and dragons? Ruby Wizardry is a playful, illustrated tale that will teach you how to program in Ruby by taking you on a fantastical journey. As you follow the adventures of young heroes Ruben and Scarlet, you'll learn real programming skills, like how to: Use fundamental concepts like variables, symbols, arrays, and strings Work with Ruby hashes to create a programmable breakfast menu Control program flow with loops and conditionals to help the Royal Plumber Test your wild and crazy ideas in IRB and save your programs as scripts Create a class of mini-wizards, each with their own superpower! Organize and reuse your code with methods and lists Write your own amazing interactive stories using Ruby Along the way, you'll meet colorful characters from around the kingdom, like the hacker Queen, the Off-White Knight, and Wherefore the minstrel. Ruby Wizardry will have you (or your little wizard) hooked on programming in no time. For ages 10+ (and their parents!)
