Collective Insanity

Using (and abusing) ruby's collection classes to make your code simpler. There are some interesting possibilities lurking within. There will be code, performed live and without a safety net. Bring your own protective gear; we will not be responsible for any injuries sustained.

About Arlen Walker

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. Arlen is among those who insist this has already happened. He has been playing around with ruby for a few years, now, and believes Mats has reached his goal for the language, which was to make programming fun. Along the way he has come to believe irb is one of the best teaching tools for ruby ever invented. Don't ask me, ask the system.
