Five Things You Didn't Know Your Documentation Tool Could Do
by Loren Segal
YARD http://yardoc.org/ is a pretty great tool for writing and serving documentation. But did you know you could also do some other neat things with your documentation tool? This talk will outline some of YARD's lesser known features and discuss different commands and techniques to visualize your code, provide basic code metrics, and ensure overall quality in your documentation.
The Well-Grounded Nuby
by David A. Black
If you get the fundamentals right, the rest of Ruby falls into place nicely. In this talk, Ruby developer and author David A. Black takes you on a tour of a large handful of Ruby features and techniques chosen to help you understand the essence of the language, and to avoid common pitfalls that sometimes hold people up when they're trying to master Ruby. All are invited: nubies, Rubyists who want to cement the foundations, and anyone who works with Ruby developers and wants to help them along the way.
