Thanks for visiting! This is my (currently little) repository containing my guides about how to work with various tools in the Ruby Ecosystem.
-There's currently only one guide: "Developing a RubyGem using Bundler". It teaches you how to develop a gem using Bundler, testing things such as methods and command-line interfaces. If you're thinking of developing your own gem then this is the perfect place to start.

-I'm currently in the planning stages of the second guide: "Writing a Rails 3 Engine" which will be a chapter in the book I am co-authoring with [Yehuda Katz](http://yehudakatz.com) called [Rails 3 in Action](http://manning.com/katz) as well as freely available here as a form of promotion for the book.

## You made a mistake! / I don't understand!
Please file an [issue](http://github.com/radar/guides/issues) and I'll see what I can do about it. If you don't understand something then I'm Doing It Wrong.

I discovered the `bundle gem` command whilst skimming the [CHANGELOG for Bundler](http://github.com/carlhuda/bundler/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md). It was added in 1.0.0.rc4, the third-to-last RC before Bundler's 1.0.0 release and I was instantly in love with it. I moved my [by_star](http://github.com/radar/by_star) and [lookup](http://github.com/radar/lookup) gems across to it and then I got interested as to how I would go about developing a brand-new gem using Bundler, Thor, RSpec and Cucumber. So that's what I did, documenting the whole process as the "Developing a RubyGem using Bundler" guide.
-The upcoming engines guide was a result of a couple of polls I put out on [Twitter](http://ryanbigg.com). There's a massive void of nothingness where there should be documentation about developing engines in Rails 3 which I hope to fix with this guide.

## Who would do such a thing?!
[I](http://ryanbigg.com) would do. By writing about how to use a tool, I gain a better understanding of how it works and get to share that knowledge with the rest of the world. I do all of this on my own personal time as a way to promote myself as a Smart Kinda Guy, and also to share what I know with the rest of the world just in case there's an unfortunate moment where I'm unable to from then on.
Whilst writing and researching all these things _can_ be frustrating at some points, I do it because of the high I get when I figure something out.

-Andre Arko: Discussion about where to put the development dependencies for the "Developing a RubyGem using Bundler" guide. They should go in the _.gemspec_ file by using the `add_development_dependency` method.
