Learning Ruby with Codeacademy.com

The first time I encountered coding was back in grade 8 with MSN spaces and live blogs. Using HTML I taught myself the basics of scripting to stylize my blogs and embed multimedia. Now almost finished my undergrad, I have been exposed to to CSS, Javascript, PHP and Postscript. There is no doubt that  coding has become a prevalent skill in today’s economy.

Using codeacademy, I decided to explore  a different programming language called Ruby, or Ruby on Rails. Ruby is an open source programming language for creating pages and applications that collect information from a web server.

Below is a preview of the code that asks a user a specific question and prompts them to send their information back.
