Discussion for Hashes in Ruby

If we use h ={key: "value"}) it will allow us to access the value through both h[:key] and h["key"].


Hey Yago, while this is true, HashWithIndifferentAccess is only available via ActiveSupport. This section of the learning path is focused purely on Ruby.


Thanks Collin! I like the #dig method! : )


It's a good one for sure! ;)


Absolutely, HashWithIndifferentAccess is handy for treating keys as either symbols or strings. It provides flexibility when accessing values, making your code more user-friendly and versatile.


I am coming from javascript and most of the concepts are similar but you do an amazing job explaining everything. Good job!
