Product description

Ruby is the fastest growing and most exciting dynamic language out there. If you need to get working programs delivered fast, you should add Ruby to your toolbox.

This book is the only complete reference for both Ruby 1.9 and Ruby 2.0, the very latest version of Ruby.

2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the Ruby language. We're proud that throughout its history, we've continued to cover the latest version of Ruby.

Would you like to go from first idea to working code much, much faster? Do you currently spend more time satisfying the compiler instead of your clients or end users? Are you frustrated with demanding languages that seem to get in your way, instead of getting the work done? Are you using Rails, and want to dig deeper into the underlying Ruby language? If so, then we've got a language and book for you!

Ruby is a fully object-oriented language, much like the classic object-oriented language, Smalltalk. Like Smalltalk, it is dynamically typed (as opposed to Java or C++), but unlike Smalltalk, Ruby features the same conveniences found in modern scripting languages such as Perl and Python.

The combination of the power of a pure object-oriented language with the convenience of a scripting language makes Ruby a favorite tool of intelligent, forward-thinking programmers.

The Pickaxe contains four major sections:

An acclaimed tutorial on using Ruby. The definitive reference to the language. Complete documentation of all built-in classes, modules, and methods. Complete descriptions of all 97 standard libraries.

This is the reference manual for Ruby, including a description of all the standard library modules, a complete reference to all built-in classes and modules (including all the new and changed methods introduced by Ruby 1.9, 1.9.2, 1.9.3, and 2.0). It also includes all the new and changed syntax and semantics introduced since Ruby 1.8. Learn about the new parameter passing rules, local variable scoping in blocks, fibers, and the new block declaration syntax, among other exciting new features.

About Ruby 2.0

Ruby 2.0 is a minor update to Ruby 1.9, unlike the more major updates from Ruby 1.8 to Ruby 1.9.

The major language changes in Ruby 2.0 are the addition of keyword arguments and the change to use UTF-8 as the default source file encoding.

There are a number of additions to the standard library, including:

@Enumerator::Lazy@, which adds support for lazy access to potentially infinite lists. Refinements allow you to encapsulate changes to third-party classes, and scope their application to individual source files, preventing your changes from polluting the global application.

You'll also find that Ruby 2 is faster, and has memory management improvements that make it more server-friendly.

All told, there are over 110 sections of...

Trumpet Solo: Q&A with Dr. Dave Thomas - The Trumpet Online

As early as my grade school years at Our Lady of Lourdes School in Burgettstown, PA, I enjoyed reading and writing. I think that I had read every book that my elementary school had in its library and then some. Also, I enjoyed writing: I wrote many silly stories to entertain my classmates–but mostly to catch Salli Froats’s attention, and I wrote some love poems and some limericks. In grade school, of course, I did not know what a college professor was or did. however, I did think that it would be both fun and rewarding to be a teacher. I enjoyed the classroom atmosphere, and I liked doing homework. And then one day, I realized that teachers did not work a twelve-month schedule—with summers and holidays off. At the time, I could not think of a better occupation—except for being a major league baseball player. Then later, when I realized that college professors had even more time off during the year than elementary and secondary teachers as well as fewer classes per term, I knew that college teaching would suffice nicely as a profession, as such would... When I first attended West Liberty State College in the early-seventies, a few professors (Art Barbeau, Jack Harris, Jack Hattman, and Bob Sykes) also inspired me to teach on the collegiate level. My favorite memories of WLSC/WLU, involve my interactions with students, staff, and faculty. As both a fraternity (Theta Xi) and sorority advisor (Chi Omega) at one time or another, I was fairly active in extra-curricular activities both on- and off-campus with students, and these many activities continued until my later years at West... Moreover, I attended most of the Homecoming celebrations (all but two) from 1972 forward, mostly because I could socialize with alumni, students, staff, and faculty. I fondly remember a number of field trips and camping outings with students. I also enjoyed being named Professor of the Year four different times, as this award was given from the students. Most recently (2013), I was awarded a $24, 700 grant from the REAP program through the WV DEP in order to kick-start WLU’s recycling program, and that, too, is a good memory. But, most significantly, my meeting many life-long friends, fiancees, and wives will remain among my most precious memories. My future plans include continuing to write, doing some painting around the house, travelling, having a Victoria Secret’s model sleepover, running the bulls in Pamplona, and selling antiques at my wife’s shop in Moundsville—if I survive the... If there’s one thing you’d want your former students/faculty members to remember you by, what would that be. What I would like the WLU community to remember most about me would be a couple of things. One would be that I was a good teacher who was a fair grader—not easy, but fair. I would also like to be remembered as being friendly and approachable—about both school-related and personal matters. I believe I made an extra effort to assist those in need—whether for tutoring, advice, money, or just shootin’-the-shit. Another would be that because teaching and learning can be fun, I tried to make my classes fun. Student evaluations most often confirmed this aspect of my classes. Additionally, I would like to be remembered as someone who believed that it was necessary to stand up for basic rights. As an advisor and a colleague, during my thirty-one-year tenure, I advocated for dozens in judicial hearings, termination hearings, settlements, grievances, etc. While it was sometimes uncomfortable to stand up against a seeming injustice, it was necessary to do so. And in being an advocate for others, as well as standing up for what I believed was right (as in my own grievances), I think that I... But most of all, what I would like others to remember about me is that although my methods and practices were not always conventional or popular, “I did it my way,” and “that has made all of the.
