    I always over think these. I still need to get it out of my thick skull to use if statements in methods in functions like in javascript

    Info on attire_reader http://stackoverflow.com/a/5046915
    attr_reader* stupid autocorrect >.<
    If you don’t want to use attr_reader, you can assign the instance variable to a variable that doesn’t share the same name as the method

    @/all the Use attr_reader to define trivial reader methods. style violation has been disabled in the upstream. do a git pull upstream master to pull down the fix

    @zmrow
    @ryansobol is it preferable to use attr_reader?
    Ryan Sobol
    @ryansobol
    @zmrow for professional rubyists, yes
    @zmrow i’ll demonstrate in class

    @ryansobol Rubocop is fine, but rspec is the one that's failing...
    @ryansobol
    1) OrangeTree#fruit returns the value of @fruit
    Failure/Error: expect(orange_tree.fruit).to eq(50)
    NoMethodError:
    undefined method `fruit' for #<OrangeTree:0x007fab61ace810 @fruit=50>
     # ./spec/class7/exercise2_spec.rb:14:in `block (3 levels) in <top (required)>'

    @ryansobol
    @snappy316 that means their’s a bug in your solution.

    If you are ever in Los Angeles, go to UCLA and look at the first computer that ever sent a message over the internet. I think the message was sent to a university in the Bay area, maybe Berkley. And the message was one word.

    hi class- if anyone's around, just wondering if there are any tips for Class 8, ex 3 homework? I'm stuck on where to assign the block_param to 'lunch'.
    Derek Maffett
    @DerekMaffett
    Let me take a look at the assignment really quick
    Okay, so you're trying to figure out how to define a method which calls a block with a parameter?
    Rachel Lanman
    @RSR312-206
    right, I'm already calling the block in my method, but not sure how to then call the same block, but now with a parameter
    Derek Maffett
    @DerekMaffett
    You're using yield, right?
    Rachel Lanman
    @RSR312-206
    i'm using block.call
    Derek Maffett
    @DerekMaffett
    Oh, okay. I usually use #call on procs, but I guess that works too
    Rachel Lanman
    @RSR312-206
    ah ok
    Derek Maffett
    @DerekMaffett
    No big deal, I just looked it up, and it works the same way
    Rachel Lanman
    @RSR312-206
    i tried yield on some earlier exercises, and I thought rubocop may have taken issue, but I cant remember
    Derek Maffett
    @DerekMaffett
    I don't think rubocop dislikes yield, but I could be wrong. It might also have to do with whether you reference the block being passed in as a parameter or just leave no reference to it in the method definition
    Either way, you're calling a block of code to be run.
