Sandi Metz(http://www.sandimetz.com/) at the Atlanta RailsConf 2015 talking about object-oriented design: https://youtu.be/OMPfEXIlTVE

Looks at Ruby code, how to simplify and reduce the amount of code you write.

Sandi Metz wrote a book called Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby.
A description of what the book is all about and how it’s changed the way people learn to code:

Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby (POODR) is a programmers tale about how to write object-oriented code. It explains object-oriented design (OOD) using realistic, understandable examples.   POODR is a practical, readable introduction to how OOD can lower your costs and improve your applications.

POODR will help you:

  • Decide what belongs in a single class
  • Avoid entangling objects that should be kept separate
  • Define flexible interfaces among objects
  • Reduce programming overhead costs with duck typing
  • Successfully apply inheritance
  • Build objects via composition
  • Design cost-effective tests
  • Craft simple, straightforward, understandable code

If your code is killing you and the joy is gone, POODR has the cure.
