Beautiful Ruby

Ruby is beautiful. Ruby is Zen. We stride far from jargon and buzzwords, transcend rake and bundler and the latest hot new gem. We go looking for code enlightenment -- We look at examples of beautiful ruby code and meditate on the easy and elegent solutions of hard problems.

We explore quines to open the mind, puzzles to twist it, machine learning to turn it upside down and functional programming paradigms to turn it all the way inside out.

So take a break from requirements, put down your business logic and rekindle your love of the beautiful program.
