@medusa_spider Exciting! Welcome to Ruby :) We did a @rubyrogues ep on this very topic:

So long story short, I decided instead of updating this old C program, that I would just rewrite the pre-processor in Ruby. And I had — I actually had a YAML file, which declaratively laid out the different RAM sections or the different ROM sections. And you know, you basically – so the idea was that other people who didn’t know Ruby in the project could just go into this YAML file and change the way the memory was going to be laid out by switching stuff around in the YAML file. And it worked out really well because I was able to make changes to it very fast, which I wouldn’t have been this nasty old C program. So that was my first project. Not sure I would recommend that as a great starter project, but there you go.
