Teaching Ruby in CS1

Who knows some good CS1 references for teaching Python ?
Thanks,

franck

Have you accidentally typed “Python” instead of “Ruby”?

:D.

Anyways, when I was into Python long back, I liked “Thinking Like a
Computer Scientist”. Can’t say if you can use it for CS 101 though.

There is a how to think like a computer scientist book for java,
python and c++ but the ruby one is not finished from what I’ve seen.

Though I haven’t read it I have come across this:

I was meaning “Ruby in CS1” of course. Ooops !

The Ruby P.ming Language + Ruby Best Practices should be used to
teach Ruby anywhere. While the former is about learning the core
language, the later is about using it.

Depending on what all you want to cover, you can probably sneak in
some chapters of Design Patterns in Ruby.

I was meaning “Ruby in CS1” of course. Ooops !

Interesting. But I was interested in pointers to actual CS1
teaching Ruby, preferably in known universities…
Thanks,

Is Ruby even taught in any University?

I believe the University of Oslo uses Ruby in some of their courses:

Here is a link for an advanced course, but maybe you can contact them
for more info:
