Do Mix Your Drinks

by Tom Stuart

Published July 8, 2009 in Programming

A talk about how abstract algebra is useful for Ruby programmers, both when writing everyday programs and when going to the pub afterwards. As an example I show how to use my VectorSpace library to compare and manipulate structured data for free.

Given at the July 2009 LRUG meeting (http://lrug.org/meetings/2009/06/17/july-2009-meeting/). There's a video of this talk at http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/ajax-ria/do-mix-your-drinks.
