Advanced Ruby: a 2nd–level course. If you have already done some Ruby programming, this course will help to take your coding to the next level. It explains some of the more advanced features of Ruby including blocks and procs, threads, regular expressions, exception handling, singletons and metaprogramming. The course is based on Huw Collingbourne’s book, The Book Of Ruby (a copy of 3rd PDF edition of the book is supplied with this course). All the source code is provided in the code archive. This course can be used with any editor or IDE and on any operating system that supports Ruby. If you are ready to go beyond the basics and gain a deeper understanding of how Ruby really works, this course is for you.

Note: If you’re new to programming, check out Ruby Programming for Beginners (now with over 24,000 students enrolled!).

Instructor Details

Huw Collingbourne is the technology director at SapphireSteel Software, developers of programming tools for Microsoft Visual Studio. He is author of The Little Book Of C, The Little Book Of Pointers and The Little Book Of Recursion from Bitwise Books and of The Book Of Ruby from No Starch Press. He runs Bitwise Courses and teaches courses on a range of programming topics. Huw has been a programmer for more than 30 years. He is a well-known technology writer in the UK. For over ten years he wrote the Delphi and Java programming column for PC Plus Magazine. He has also written numerous opinion and programming columns (including tutorials on C#, C++, Smalltalk and Ruby) for a number of computer magazines, such as Computer Shopper, PC Pro, and PC Plus. In the 1980s he was a pop music journalist and interviewed most of the New Romantic stars, such as Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Adam Ant, Boy George, and Depeche Mode. He is now writing a series of 1980s murder mysteries. At various times Huw has been a magazine publisher, editor, and TV broadcaster. He has an MA in English from the University of Cambridge and holds a 2nd dan black belt in aikido, a martial art which he teaches in North Devon, UK. The aikido comes in useful when trying (usually unsuccessfully) to keep his Pyrenean Mountain Dogs under some semblance of control.

    Very good course. Some topics i would like to have gone more in depth with and also update for newer version of Ruby. Very clear instructor however, would recommend this course for any Ruby programmer who wants to get more ideas of best practices and food for thought.

    The section about YAML was not very engaging.

    Unfortunately, I bought this course and I didn’t check it until now, and I see a big issue here. Syntax of Ruby is wrong, how it can have a name instanceMethod, or variables like aDir …. this is all wrong, this is 100% not according to code conventions, formatting of the code is not correct. All examples are executed in Windows (but this is minor). Finally, looks like this course was recorded many years ago (from 2010), this is based on Ruby version which I see. I do not recommend it, sorry to the author, but I’ve to tell to other people. I don’t like an idea that I could potentially work with people who will use your course to learn Ruby.

    So far this course seems as though it is exactly what I currently need to fill in the gaps of my Ruby knowledge.

    Problems with this course: constantly promotes his book, I wouldn’t mind him mentioning it once, but he’s already done it in like 3 videos. sometimes texts or titles appear with animations similar to those of power point from 20 years ago. I was hoping it would be a little more advanced, but I’m only at he fifth video, maybe it’ll get better later.

    Can’t download code archive not an unzippable file format. But so far the instruction itself seems to be OK.

    So far so good. When paired with the book, this course is excellent in providing more insight into how ruby works under the hood and ways to prevent stupid bugs or errors.
