Code and the Coding Coders who Code it

Episode 11 - Noel Rappin

Noel Rappin joins the show to talk about his new book, "Programming Ruby 3.2", best known as the "Pickaxe Book".  Noel talks about his adventures working on a legacy book and even having to deal with some legacy code in a legacy book. The Pickaxe Book is one of the biggest, and oldest, books on my shelf so it's no surprise that this was a beast of an update.
