Todo Ruby Basics


Review your understanding of

  • defining methods
  • defining methods with default argument
  • assigning variables
  • return values


This is a test-driven lab. To get started, (once you fork and clone the lab down onto your computer), run the test suite with the learn or rspec command. Read the test output in your terminal to learn how to fill out the methods to get your tests to pass. We've already defined the methods for you––you need to write the code inside of them to give them the desired behavior, as defined by the tests. Refer back to the earlier lessons on reading test output for help.

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."

Learn. Love. Code.
Students come to Flatiron School to change their lives. Join our driven community of career-changers and master the skills you need to become a software engineer or a data scientist.
