The Beauty of Ruby



As Edd Dumbill wrote, "the subtle elegance of the Ruby idiom is a slowly appreciated and highly satisfying flavour." It's true that some of the best things about Ruby aren't obvious to newcomers. In this talk Glenn Vanderburg demonstrates some of the subtle beauty that experienced Rubyists know and love.


Glenn Vanderburg is an independent consultant focused on cutting-edge software development technologies and techniques, including Ruby, JavaScript, Ajax, and state-of-the-art development practices.
