Ruby

In Ruby, where classes are objects, metaclasses are classes, and any object can have its own singleton class, the general object model is deeper, and stranger, than it first appears. Learn to use all of Rubys meta-programming capabilities to write dynamic and flexible programs and to code past the conventional OO idioms. Don't miss the hot new web application framework, Ruby on Rails.
