Ruby Code Golf

Extreme use of the Ruby programming language


Code Golf is a programming competition where the goal is to create the smallest possible program that solves some specific problem. The site host an unofficial 'world code golf tournament'.

I competed in the Ruby version of the '99 bottles of beer' challenge, which is a code golf classic, and has been running for more than 3 years. Almost 100 entries are uploaded each week.

I managed to create the 7th best solution ever. Four months later (februry 2010) nobody has matched my solution.


  • Creative algorithm development
  • Ruby programming and testing
  • Squeezing every possible bit out of the code!
