Episode #423 – December 3rd, 2013

This week we watch, lint, memoize, error handle, say hello to and write more idiomatic Ruby.

Linda Liukas — one of the Rails Girls co-founders — is putting together an illustrated children's book about Ruby. She’s writing the story of a little girl (Ruby) and a robot (the computer) to represent and explains some basic Ruby and programming concepts. It doesn't look like the book is anywhere near ready yet but Linda is publishing excerpts on her blog, and you can sign up to be notified about this lovely little project.
