So this week on the agenda, was to try out at least three programming languages and make “Hello World” -programs with them.
I chose Python, Ruby and C because they are the programming languages I’m most interested in learning more about, and they can be used for a variety of different things. They’re simple and versatile.
I first made sure I had Ruby installed by using the command which ruby. It showed me the path where Ruby was installed. I could then use the command ruby -v to find out what version I had and the command sudo apt-get install ruby-full to upgrade it to the latest release.
I installed C programming language with the command sudo apt-get install build-essentials.
Then I wrote up the code in the programming language editor, saved and used another command in the command line to compile it.
