Ruby Sockets from the Outside In

Not every Ruby user needs to write their own TCP servers and clients from scratch. If you do, though, you’ll appreciate the screencast Jesse Storimer just released. He uses the Ruby Sockets library, and he writes a simple server in just 3 lines of code.

Then Jesse goes even further by hand-coding replacements for the Sockets library methods. It shows you exactly how much pain Ruby is saving you with the high-level API. Along the way you learn what the library is doing under the hood, and what parts you might replace when the defaults aren’t what you want.
