Devon Estes wants to give this talk

Methods, Functions and Objects - oh my!

Functional programming is all the rage these days, and many Rubyists feel left out of all the fun. But don't despair - many of the great ideas that are coming out of the functional revolution are applicable to our Ruby code, too! In this talk we'll explore some of the ways we can make our Ruby code more functional without giving up any of the joys of object orientation. In this talk you'll see how using some functional programming concepts can make your Ruby code easier to test, easier to maintain, and easier to change!
