Ruby is a modern, elegant programming language. It can be described as dynamic and object-oriented. Others call it a "scripting" language. It has recently become quite popular, thanks to the "Ruby on Rails" web development kit. In this lecture I will present the language and try to show some of the neat things about it. A background in programming (and preferably some knowledge of object-oriented programming) will be required for this lecture.
