Learn about the art of writing code that writes code. In this session we will explore some of the metaprogramming techniques that make Ruby the ideal language for framework development.
Metaprogramming techniques can greatly reduce the amount of code you write while clarifying the intend of your code. Learn how frameworks like Ruby on Rails and others exploit metaprogramming to infuse that special magic that only open dynamic languages can produce.
