Metaprogramming in Ruby Presentation

By Peter Cooper / October 27, 2007

A few weeks ago, Peter Vanbroekhoven of the newly formed Belgian Ruby User Group gave a presentation called Metaprogramming in Ruby (video and slides available). Peter looks at some of the metaprogramming voodoo used by libraries like ActiveRecord and looks at how to create domain specific languages of your own.

    Good stuff. The video seems to crap out towards the end though.

  3. Jonathan Conway says:

    Great presentation, but is it just me or am I the only one that squirmed at the thought of injecting a method called query into Kernel?
