You were expecting cats?

Here are the code examples in case you want to try them out yourself.

Here is a copy of the slides, unfortunately, they’re quiet huge at the moment, I’ll try to get smaller one as soon as I figure out keynote…

Suggestions from the audience

  • Ruby Hacking Guide : more detailed information about Ruby internals.
  • RubyInline : allows you to write C code in the middle of Ruby code
  • Somebody said the videos of the talks would be put up here
  • Dr. Nic was kind enough to write a generator to handle native extensions for his newgem tool. newgem is definitely worth trying out, it generates a LOT of boiler plate, which is sort of overwhelming. But it’s more fun to figure out what his tool does than to type boilerplate code.
