I had a small break in my Skillcrush Developer Blueprint before starting the Ruby lesson. I thought it would be good for me to keep coding. Practice makes perfect! I found a free course on Ruby through Codeschool.
It has 7 levels and teaches objects, methods, arrays, etc. The course required a blog entry using Ruby, which I enjoyed. As you know, I enjoy blogging!
The Codeschool course gave me enough insight into the Ruby language and inspired me to learn more. I found the initial tasks fairly easy.
After completing Codeschool I feel confident that I will be successful in attempting more difficult concepts within the Ruby programming language. I suggest you try as it builds not only knowledge of the language, but also confidence.
I recently read ‘A whole new mind why right brainers will rule the future.’ I found the topic of the Labyrinth to be particularly interesting. While I was visually familiar, I had not really understood its background. What does walking a labyrinth do for people? Hospitals have begun to add them within their construct. A lot of people claim to pray, find peace, or solve difficult problems by walking them. I find that fascinating.
David Tolzman (he design the Labyrinth at Johns Hopkins) stated:
“As the left brain engages in the logical progression in walking the path, the right brain is free to think creatively.”
