Metaprogramming vs plain Ruby or other languages
posted 5 years ago
If you're steeped in Java, then think about Java's reflection features. Reflection is not something that you learn on your first few days through the language - but when you're a bit more advanced, then you'll definitely want to know about reflection, and you'll probably use it fairly often. Metaprogramming is similar, but more advanced. So you should know the basics of Ruby before you start looking into it.
