Monday, 14th October at Skills Matter, London

This meetup is run by LRUG: London Ruby User Group. Starts at 6:30 PM.

In LRUG's October 2013 Meeting, we welcome Drew Neil who will be speaking about Modelling state machines with Ragel. We will also hear from Olly Legg who will give a talk on Enumerators in Ruby.

Modelling state machines with Ragel

To demonstrate Ragel’s capabilities we’ll model Vim, which is a Finite State Machine. We’ll do so by parsing a stream of Vim keystrokes, using Ragel state machines to manage the transitions between Vim’s modes.

Enumerators in Ruby

Enumerators are a little known class in the standard library. I’ll discuss where they’re used in stdlib, how you can implement them and (at least) one practical example where they might be the right solution.
