Ruby Under a Microscope

Pat Shaughnessy was at RubyConf in Miami two weeks ago where he gave a fascinating talk about the guts of Ruby’s garbage collector, how it evolved over time and why the work undertaken by Koichi Sasada for Ruby 2.1’s generational garbage collector should have every Rubyist jumping up and down giddily. Pat also released a book recently called Ruby Under a Microscope. It looks like a great way to get intimate with Ruby. Like his talk, Pat does a fantastic job of illustrating the core concepts inside of the Ruby interpreters. If you wonder whether that's going to help you write better Ruby code consider the fact that it's not always obvious how to optimize code to play nice with Ruby’s garbage compiler. Pat was kind enough to extend a discount code for Ruby5 listeners. You can use the code EXPERIMENT to get 30% off.
