Ruby Literals Tasting Menu

Ruby has an extraordinarily rich syntax for literal values such as numbers and strings. This short course will take you beyond the basics, and fill in the gaps in your knowledge of Ruby's literal syntaxes. You'll learn to write more expressive code, and you'll better understand code that others have written taking advantage of Ruby's more advanced quoting constructs.
