About This Episode

A method or function is a way to define a group of code that can be used repeatedly. We'll learn how to define methods in our Ruby code and then use them multiple times.


What's the difference between a method and function? A method and function are exactly the same thing in Ruby.

In other languages, a function refers to a group of code that performs a specific task and method would be a function that is associated with an object (class).

For Ruby, everything is an object so a function and method are the same thing.
