    An otherwise good presentation ruined by an awful, macabre joke.

    You can watch Dave's other talk about Metaprogramming in ruby on YouTube here. YouTube also has many others talking about metaprogramming as well.

    Also, there is a great Video Course about "Ruby Metaprogramming" here as well. Well worths its' price.

    Disclaimer: I did peer review for the course. So, the author gave me $100 OFF coupon that I added to the URL above as well.
