Episode 1 - Lions, Pandas and Zookeepers

An accurate simulation of zookeepers feeding Lions and Pandas

Panda Level

  1. Create a human that likes bacon and tacos, but not bamboo
  2. (Using TDD [write tests first])

Tiger Level

  1. Create a FoodBarge that can be called like:
  2. Test that when the zookeepers gets food for the panda, the panda will eat it
food = foodbarge.food_for(panda)

Eagle Level

  1. Extract Food into a class, rather than a symbol
  2. Create separate Tacos, Wildebeests, etc classes for each food
  3. Rather than comparing, implement the == method so you can do ==

Ruby Off Rails is dedicated to accelerating the mastering of Ruby and increasing developer happiness everywhere.

In my software training, I see two distinct sets of programmers: those who know Ruby, and those who haven’t learned it yet. People who learn Ruby have an easier time understanding Rails, gems, and what magic voodoo is going on. And most importantly, they can cast wicked voodoo themselves.
