The book excerpt is an exclusive sample chapter of the Book "Chapter 8: Building Simple Widgets", which gives a introduction to basic GUI building. 

The linked article also contains an in depth interview with the books author, Lyle Johnson. The interview touches on topics such as

  • how FXRuby deals with keeping GUIs responsive in light of Ruby 1.8.x userspace threads
  • what makes FXRuby very compelling to use
  • and more
