Robert Pitts presents tools and techniques for using Ruby in an Object-Functional style, along with the pros and cons of such an approach.
Robert Pitts is very interested in the intersections of art, computer science, and community. He believes there is no “one true way” and thinks that we all have a lot to learn from each other*, so perhaps we should be nicer :)
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
