[Video 340] John Cinnamond: Extreme Object-Oriented Ruby

Ruby is, of course, an object-oriented language.  But there are parts of its syntax that aren’t quite object-oriented, such as the “if” statement. In this talk, John Cinnamond tries to push Ruby to its limits, removing and re-implementing parts of the language that we often take for granted. Perhaps this isn’t a way in which we would want to program every day, but it is certainly thought provoking, and gives us greater insight into what it means to describe programming as object-oriented.
