Main Presentation

Telling, Not Asking

From the speaker: "During the last 12 months we have seen a rapid rise in the discussion

of “proper” object-oriented approaches to designing Ruby and/or Rails
applications. One sound-bite that comes up frequently goes something
like “You need to change your code to Tell, Don’t Ask”. What does that
mean in practice? This session seeks to examine one aspect of this big
topic, looking at how to use publish-subscribe techniques to de-couple
responsibilities. The session will be full of code and full of debate:
I don’t think there is “one best way” and so I would like to explore
the pros and cons of various options with the session participants."
