More from Ruby on Ruby

, Aug 26, 2005

Sam Ruby continues to explore Ruby, this time showing how to persist entries retrieved from an Atom feed into a MySQL DB; 99 lines including database creation, table setup and feed parsing! My favorite feature is the way Ruby enables you to add methods to existing classes (look for the atomtext method).

Not very much — Ruby is one of the programming languages that I maybe read a tutorial and one or two papers on, but never programmed in.

Cool. That means that you are my target audience. ;-)

I’m presenting on this in a few weeks. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
