`Medusa` mythical creature: part 2

Article Table of Contents

Preparing for Turing Series Index #

What follows is an eight-part series that will help you pick up useful information about a number of topics related to Ruby, specifically geared for students learning the Ruby programming language, as part of the Turing School’s Backend Software Development Program

It’s generally intended that you progress sequentially, but there’s no “right way” or “right order” to encounter these topics. You could convince me I have the order exactly backwards. I’d disagree, but only slightly.

I encourage you to skim around these chapters, get the “shape” of what’s to come, in your mind, and then dive in wherever you want. Good luck, and bug reports are welcome.

Wow. I made this video months ago, forgot to make it findable.

Turing’s Mythical Creatures: Medusa refactor #

Watch/read part 1 if you’ve not already:

Here’s a walk-through for strategies and tactics to refactor the mythical creature we built last time. The refactored code is much improved, and your own understanding of your own code will be much improved as well.

Part 2 is a 14 minute video, contains a lot of information. Block out 30-40 minutes to work through it.
