Let's practice some basic Ruby to make sure that everything you've learned so far sticks. We'll review single and double-quoted strings, as well as escape sequences.
[SOUND] Let's practice some basic Ruby to make sure that every 0:01 thing you've learned so far sticks. 0:06 We'll review single quoted and double quoted strings as well as escape 0:09 sequences, which let you include white space in a double quoted string. 0:13 If you're not familiar with these topics, 0:17 check the teacher's notes attached to this video for links where you can learn more. 0:18 We're going to ask you to build a simple Ruby program. 0:23 This time, you're the teacher. 0:25 When your program is run, 0:27 it should output a brief tutorial on using Ruby escape sequences. 0:28 I've attached a workspace to this video, 0:36 which includes a tutorial.rb starter file with instructions as Ruby comments. 0:39 You should open the work space now. 0:44 If you have Ruby installed on your computer, you can go to the file menu and 0:46 choose download work space, but 0:49 if you don't, feel free to run tutorial.rb from the console. 0:51 I've linked to some videos in the teacher's notes, 0:56 which you can refer to if you get stuck. 0:58 After you've written your program, 1:00 you can proceed to the next video where you can compare my solution to yours. 1:01 Ready? 1:06 Get started on your program. 1:06 I'll show you my version in the next video. 1:08
