Part 1. Foundations and Scaffolding

This part of the book is where the foundations of your Ruby knowledge will be laid. By the end of this part, you'll be able to develop a complete, though basic, Ruby program. You'll learn how to get Ruby working, what object orientation is, how to develop some basic programs, and about the data types and control structures Ruby uses and can operate on. Finally, I'll walk you through creating a small program from start to finish.
