Hashes and Symbols
All Aboard the Hash Rocket!

The hash syntax you’ve seen so far (with the => symbol between keys and values) is sometimes nicknamed the hash rocket style.

numbers = { :one => 1, :two => "two", :three => 3, }

This is because the => looks like a tiny rocket!

Let’s build a hash from the ground up using symbols as keys.



Create a hash called movies with symbols as keys and strings as values.

Inside your hash, add two key/value pairs.

The keys should be the names of movies.

The values should be quick descriptions or reviews.
