I want to give a talk that discusses a handful of topics related to rubygems, that might be interesting for devs who haven't published a gem before or don't know how they work. I'd like to discuss what a gem really is, how gem loading works, how to debug errors coming from a gem you're using and how to make your own gem.
Things I wish I'd known about Ruby Gems
I've been developing web apps in ruby for the last 9 years, mostly in consultancies. I used to be at New Bamboo/Thoughtbot, now at bluespot. I've published a few gems in my time and I maintain the json-schema gem.
