IronRuby and hashes in metaprogramming

This will probably be one of the shortest blogposts I'll ever write, and probably the one with the least amount of code - besides an occational rant. The reason is that like pictures sometimes say more than a 1000 words, so does elegant code.

module MyModule
class MyClass
def write_stuff text
puts text

m =
actions = {:write_stuff => "Hello action packed world!"}
actions.each {|key, value| m.method(key).call(value) }

It might just be me who is weird - but I think this way of doing eg. a strategy pattern is pretty cool.


Who am I?

My name is Christian Holm Diget, and I work as an independent consultant, in Denmark, where I write code, give advice on architecture and help with training. On the side I get to do a bit of speaking and help with miscellaneous community events.

Some of my primary focus areas are code quality, programming languages and using new technologies to provide value.
