Using Ruby on my computer?

I've watched all the Ruby courses until this point and I feel as though something is missing. Suddenly there is a terminal and the teacher is installing Sinatra. Is there a course on this that I missed? The only terminal I have is CMD, and it obviously doesn't respond to anything Ruby related. Help!

Hi Michael,

You didn't specify your OS, but here are all the Installation Workshops for Rails Development. The top ones are the most current and use Rails 5.

Hope that helps. :) :dizzy:

If you're using Windows, install Ruby using Ruby Installer.

After it's installed, you'll get a Command Prompt with Ruby.
