CS 430: Lecture 1 - Hello Ruby

Dear students:

Welcome to CS 430: Programming Languages. I'm Chris. Today is a day where we get to know each other, talk about our summers, and discuss the structure and policies of the course. We'll do some of that. But I want to spend most of our time introducing ourselves to our first lens through which we'll examine programming languages this semester. That lens is Ruby. We'll get to know Ruby by solving as many of the following problems as we can on Open Kattis:

You'll work in pairs. Be prepared to explain your solutions to the rest of the class.


Here's your list of things to do before we meet next:

See you next time.


P.S. It's time for a haiku!

I learned English first But not till I learned Spanish Did I learn language
