What: State College Ruby Group February Meetup

Meetup Description: I propose a talk about how Ruby objects and classes actually work. This includes how Ruby itself keeps track of objects, their attributes, and their methods. It will also fully explain how class methods, class variables, inheritance, instance variables, and singleton objects and methods work.

This talk will be valuable both for people brand new to Ruby, and for those that have been using it for years. Beginners will learn when and how you use things like class methods, inheritance, and class variables, and the experts will learn the details of how the Ruby language implements these constructs. It's also good information for people who are familiar with the object models in other programming languages, since most languages implement these details differently.

At the end of the talk, you'll have a much better grasp of how to use Ruby objects and classes, and the way that you think about these constructs will be more aligned with how Ruby actually implements them. This is a critical step for advancing as a Ruby (or object-oriented) programmer.
