If you, like me, know basic Ruby and are perhaps ready for some more advanced topics, Ola Bini’s Ruby Metaprogramming techniques may be just the ticket. The first tip, about singleton classes, is kind of scary and it’s a technique I haven’t fully internalized, but the voodoo level decreases fast and there are a few tricks that I can use right now. I’m already using method_missing, any language that doesn’ t have that just seems crippled.
