Intro to Metaprogramming by Judson Lester
One of the good parts about Ruby is metaprogramming: building programs at runtime. It can be daunting to get started though. We'll talk about parts of the core library that make it possible and two language features that are essential and badly understood: closures and metaclasses.
Judson has been working with Ruby for close to 10 years, and is part of Logical Reality Design, a Rails shop out of Altadena.

Kronk — HTTP consumption for humans and computers by Jeremie Castagna
If you've had to work on a Service application for any amount of time, you probably know how tedious it can be to pinpoint a single data point in a response, or to check for what's different between two environments. Kronk lets you do this very easily, as well as log replays, benchmarking, data transformation, and more.
Senior Software Engineer for AT&T Interactive, my work mostly consists of high availability services and APIs. I love writing Ruby and open source software that helps people.
Park on the street or in the DigiSynd parking lot.
