Finally getting around to reading some of the classic Ruby books and improving my design & testing skills. Even though I'm pretty proud of my code, it's hard not to want to rewrite everything.

@josh Finished Practical Object-Oriented Design, now I'm going through Refactoring: Ruby Edition. After that, on to Eloquent Ruby.

@brian_kephart very cool. POOD is excellent; if you can ever take a workshop with Sandi, I definitely recommend it

If you think of it, please post about how Eloquent Ruby turns out; I haven't read it

@brian_kephart if you want another one for the list, _99 Bottles of OOP_ is the best long worked example of refactoring I've ever seen.
