This book is titled Practical Ruby Projects. And let me start by saying that the projects are practical. But they might not be quite what you're used to. Flip through the book. You won't find any references to enterprise deployment. Not a word about business logic. In fact, hard as it is to believe, there's no web programming But if you exclude those things, what's left? Why, everything else, of course Each chapter in this book turns Ruby loose on a new interesting problem or project. They range from creative endeavors to investigative simulations to the exploration of computer programming languages themselves. Ruby is a programming language, but it's also a tool to create, understand, and entertain. This book is all about Ruby. Why Ruby? Since this book was written with the assumption that you have a basic knowledge of Ruby, odds are you already know about Ruby's strengths. The Language You know that Ruby's blocks are a joy to use. You know how Ruby's programmer-oriented core API can make programming feel effortless. Despite what the popular press so- times says, Ruby isn't the final word in programming languages. But Ruby holds a unique position in the current landscape.
Cyll brings several imaginative projects to this book, ranging from making generative music, animations, and turn-based games to implementing simulations, algorithms, and even an implementation of Lisp. Each chapter looks at solving tricky development problems, enforces best practices, and encourages creative thinking.
