I've made a proposal for LA RubyConf. The talk will be recorded—if I get enough votes to give it. Vote here:

Ruby comprehensions as an excuse This talk uses Ruby implementations of Python's list, set, and dictionary (hash) comprehensions as an excuse to discuss functional programming in Ruby, focusing especially on using blocks to add syntax to the language. To provide a broader context, we briefly discuss some features of the Lisp programming language, including macros and lexical closures, and how they relate to "Matz's personal Lisp". The talk concludes by building up the full implementations (including tests!) of Python comprehensions in Ruby. Votes: 1 Target Audience: intermediate to experienced Ruby developers Submitted: December 06, 2012 @ 01:38:56 am UTC Last updated: December 06, 2012 @ 01:38:56 am UTC
