Product description

Review

""If you program in Ruby, buy this book. Twice. Ruby isn't magic anymore, just great.""--Joe Alba""In Ruby, the practitioners of metaprogramming have found a language where they are only constrained by their imagination. To reach mastery is hard, and even harder is to apply it tastefully. This book gives a grounding in the fundamentals of metaprogramming Ruby in such a way that anyone can pick it up and then immediately start using it. Paolo brings out the core of how simple metaprogramming can be in this book, and that is no easy task.""--Ola Bini, ThoughtWorks
