Noob Question: New to Programming


#1

Hey I am very new to ruby I am trying to learn as much as I can, I was
looking at this repository and I am curious what this method actually
means.

def self.create_new(params={})

Could someone break it down to me I apologize I am new I do not
understand what the “self.create” means

Thanks
Eric

Start here:

Next, you gotta walk before you can run. Print out any of the excellent
Ruby
books and curl up with it! Reciting them ain’t the best use for this
newsgroup.
If I told you “define a class method, not instance method, that can call
with
nothing or with an option-hash”, then we would get mired in recursive
definitions…
