Lone Star Ruby Conf 2008: Ruby in the Computer Science Classroom
What role can Ruby play in formal computer science education? The speaker is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at St. Edward’s University and will discuss how he successfully used Ruby in an upper-division computer science course. Specifically, the brief talk will focus on the assignments given and how the choice of Ruby as a programming language allowed the focus of the class to be on the concepts and not difficulties of a particular programming language (e.g. syntax challenges).
