In this stunning half-hour EXTRAVAGANZA of mind-blowing talkifying, I will show you what's wrong with Ruby's objects is actually what's right about Ruby--and how this has led a lot of programmers down the garden path to unintentionally writing hard-to-maintain code.
You may think you know how to problam with the Object Oriented Things. But! My friend, listen: There is a worldwide CONSPIRACY TO HIDE THE TRUTH about REAL object-oriented programming!
BUT NO MORE! For in this big-budget presentation MAELSTROM OF KNOWLEDGE, I shall RIP ASUNDER the veil of ignorance and together we will walk, hand in hand, arm in arm, or at a polite distance of your prefererence, into the LIGHT OF WISDOM.
I'm gonna bring some nasty code, and we gonna refactor it. We will use objects. We will use Immutability. We may even use EAST-FACING CODE. That didn't actually need to be in caps because it's a real thing. And it's going to be sweet. CAN I GET AN AMEN
