Sample text

Ruby lets you put these concepts directly into your programs, create object instances of them (instances of an “event” might be the Super Bowl or the final of the 2010 World Cup), and perform operations upon and define relationships between them. With all these concepts in your program, you can quickly relate “events” to “venues” and “tickets” to “people,” meaning that your code presents a logical system from the outset. If you haven’t programmed much before, the idea of taking real-life concepts and using them directly in a computer program might seem like an obvious way to make software development easier.

You also need to consider that other programmers might need to maintain computer programs you’ve written. This won’t be the case if you’re just programming for fun, but it’s important that your programs are easy to understand, so you can understand them when you come back to them later on. Why Ruby Makes a Great Programming Language Although English would make a bad programming language, due to its ambiguity and ­complexity, Ruby can feel surprisingly English-like at times. Ruby is just one of hundreds of programming languages, but it’s special because it feels a lot like a natural language to many programmers, while having the clarity required by computers.

Jonathan Gennick, Tim Fletcher, Peter Marklund, Alan Bradburne, and Peter Szinek deserve much praise for their seemingly unending reading and rereading of this book’s chapters throughout the various stages of their development. As a newcomer to Ruby, Jonathan provided some especially interesting insights that have served to make the book even better for Ruby newcomers to read. I’d also like to praise Susannah Davidson Pfalzer for her diligent approach to copy editing the first edition of this book by fixing my pronouns, removing my overuse of words like however and therefore, and generally making it possible to read the book without going insane.
