It's so cool that Adam Driver is teaching Ruby now


It's a lot of work going back and forth but oh the things we do for love ;)


Can you share the link to the video? Thanks in advance.


Which link are you looking for?

puts "great work".upcase


In this lesson you tell about brackets usage for better understanding that methods take arguments.
puts "text".count "a" - looks like syntax sugar, and it seems like this can lead to misunderstanding in the future.
Does it make sense to do it like in the following example instead?
puts( "text".count( "a" ) )
