Five Favorite Ruby Gems Presented to Boston Ruby Group

February 08, 2013

Mike Denomy and Johnny Boursiquot have been doing a great job organizing workshops and small talks as we continue to improve Boston Ruby Group project nights.

Mike asked a few of us to speak about a selection of five of our favorite ruby gems as a way to expose beginners to some great libraries. You can find all the talks on the BostonRB presentation listing. Jason Draper also delivered a great talk on writing your first integration tests that I definitely recommend checking out!

Video and slides from my presentation are below.
