Ruby in CS courses


(Dave Thomas) #1

I just came across another course that’s using Ruby:

http://www.utdallas.edu/~nhutnn/cs6386/

The course project is to develop a POP server and a POP client in
Ruby.

Hal’s book is recommended reading.

I have been encouraged to use Ruby in one of my CS classes at Birmingham
Southern College. www.bsc.edu.

Actually that is where I learned of Ruby. I used it to write a very
basic MIPS compiler for a language that looked like basic.

Ahh, this warms my heart.

For what it’s worth, one of my old professors had this
comment to make on chapter 1:

I very much enjoyed your functional review of OOP
(without all the hyperbole) and I think it should
be a handout in our CSCI450 Programming Languages
Course.

Hmm. Maybe I should encourage them to buy a truckload. :slight_smile:

Gosh… it seems like only last month I was taking
that course… :0
