Friends and Family Code
@codeodor - The idea is to do something stupid with Ruby -- implementing `friend` (like the C++ keyword). Then show how it was accomplished and mention a couple of ideas where you can use the same strategy for potentially more useful things. It boils down to using set_trace_func, one of my favorite methods in Ruby which I don't think many people know about.
Please RSVP to get a headcount for Pizza -- graciously sponsored by http://www.moleculesoftware.com -- they're hiring, check them out!
