Ruby is Better than Sapphire

I happened to be out a lot when this happened, but I got caught up as much as I could when we learned Ruby. Ruby is probably the simplest coding I have seen or done. When you have to put in a lot of code for one simple command, you could have Ruby do it for half as much work because it does it for you. We learn ruby off of Treehouse, but you could learn it from different sources.


Ruby is just the filler of an outline: Ruby on Rails. As of now, we haven’t dived into what this is or its purpose. Ruby is happening to have a great growth in programmers, happening to come as popular as C++, Java, Python, etc. We haven’t seen the possibility of this being able to develop games, so if that is what you’re looking for, I wouldn’t recommend this. Because of the simplicity of the programs, I would recommend this to starters. This program is more of strings and methods, so this is great practice for creating connections that can develop into other programming methods (such as Javascript).

Weekly Reflection of 9/12-9/16

This will be my second blog post to inform you all about what’s happening in the Cane Tech Squad Help Desk. Last week we did Treehouse, which is a site that can teach you many things you should know about computers, coding, etc. For our assignment, we had to learn about the digital literacy path. In the digital literacy path, we learned computer basics; data/memory, binary, software, etc. Another thing we learned was how the internet/web works along with simple coding in HTML and CSS.

First Weekly Reflection

This is my first reflection for the week of August 21st to August 26th. So far this week there hasn’t been anything very interesting, but I think that there is going to be something more interesting. For whatever reason, I suspect we’ll have a broken chromebook by the end of the quarter. It doesn’t have to be specifically my class period, but I think it’ll happen. One thing I have learned this week is making this blog and the way to navigate this. A frustrating thing this week was when there wasn’t much to do, but it got a little more busy so I had more stuff to do this class (blog included as more stuff).

Today we got a new way to keep track of the loaners going out and coming back. As I’m making this post, I don’t remember what the password is to unlock the chromebook we are using to do this new way, so I’m going to ask the teacher after this post so we will be able to do it. At the beginning of this period we had a swarm of students getting their chromebooks charged, so that’s why I have to get the password written down on a reminder post-it.

So I think that’ll be all for today’s post. Hopefully in the future posts, I’ll have more interesting things to posts, but thanks for reading anyways.
