Windows socket registry entries required for network connectivity are missing

This tutorial will show how to solve the “Windows socket registry entries required for network connectivity are missing” error.

Ruby Hello World

Ruby Logo

This guide will show you how to write a Ruby Hello World and get a basic and initial understanding about this programming language.

Why Ruby?

As a Java developer for four years long, I’ve always had the curiosity to learn a new object-oriented programming language.

By the given experiences and observations, and following the path of lots of respected developers on the community along with some personal interest, I decided to finally put some serious time on studying a new language, then Ruby is the chosen one!

I’ve already read a lot about the language, however, I’m going to dedicate this post to a simple Ruby Hello World to not extend it so much.
