El Code Snippet

Take and Use ... It's cool!


Please feel free to use this site to help you get the skills you need to help you land a coding job, redesign your own website or pick up some new skills. I've dedicated this site to help you get familiar with some of the more sought after coding skill sets that most employers are looking for.

I've designed this site to:

  • Provide a lecture type format
  • Try out the features I speak about
  • Use the mini-code samples you create to help you build your own portfolio.

Ruby's Object Oriented Programming ...

    # classes & objects
    class Employee 
      # initializing method used when creating new objects
      def initialize(full_name, id, dept)
        @full_name = full_name
        @id = id
        @dept = dept
      # use when you need to print out their full name
      def getFull_Name
      # use when you need to print out their id
      def getId 
      # use when you need to print out their department
      def getDept
    # create the new objects: emp101 & emp102 and assign them default values
    emp101 = Employee.new("John Doe", 101, "HR")
    emp102 = Employee.new("Jane Smith", 102, "Engineering")
    # put information on the screen
    puts "#{emp101.getFull_Name} works in the #{emp101.getDept} department."
    puts "Employee ID #{emp102.getId} works in the #{emp102.getDept} department."

Just like variables, objects can contain specific variable information for the particular objects those variables are associated with. Try hacking the code yourself and see if you can create more objects: https://repl.it/IiMV
