GitHub – Hangman with Ruby


I am in the process of upskilling myself for work in the Devops/Sysops space. To that end, I realized that I am grossly under skilled in a few critical areas. Right now, that area of focus is Ruby. I know just enough to automate the most simple of processes, but I want to go deeper. To that end, I built Hang Man, using ruby. At this point, there is no animated Hang Man, just the guessing game… so I don’t know that I can call it Hang Man. But, I do intend to add the Man sometime when I have time… which might not happen.

What I Learned

Through this project, I learned a LOT about arrays. How to generate them, how to add, remove, or change elements, and how to compare data sets. It was a fun and challenging process to be sure. I also learned how to apply basic loops in Ruby. Ruby is not too semantically different from Python, which I already have a bit of experience with, so overall it was not too much trouble to migrate to Ruby for this project.

The Code

Feel free to download and use this code base for any of your own projects. I’m excited to have some code now that I can reference moving forward.

  3. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    • Might have been from when you were looking at the site. I transitioned over from an AWS EC2 instance for the backend server to using AWS Lightsail as the backend (Still backed by EC2 – but shared resources which is much cheaper).
