Wow Code, Such Read! (NR Ruby UnConf)

Published February 23, 2017 in Programming

Abstract:
When we learn to code, that usually means learning how to *write* code. However in practice, we spend a lot of time *reading* code instead! It’s the way we find answers to questions about how things work. Reading code efficiently is therefore a very valuable skill. This talk will cover how Ruby developers can improve this skill, with tips for comprehending and debugging code faster. We'll also take a look at how you’d go one level deeper and read Ruby’s own source code, even if you don’t know much about C!

This talk was presented at an internal Ruby unconf at New Relic.
