Fun fact about Confident Ruby that I haven’t gotten around to mentioning on the book’s homepage: it has a foreword by Sandi Metz, author of Practical Object Oriented Design in Ruby! How cool is that?!

Happy hacking!


  1. Hey Avdi,

    belated congratulations!
    I’ve been subscribed to your Ruby Tapas for over a year now, and I’m very happy with your little screencasts about Ruby. So thank you very much for producing them!

    I just watched this episode again and noticed something that I suppose is a tiny bug in that one-liner you present at the end: The line is scanned for tabs or spaces until it hits a non-whitespace character and then the minimum count of matches across all lines is removed. However, tabs have a different size than simple spaces so when some lines are indented via tab and others via spaces, the result will not be properly unindented.
    I guess this is just another example of why one shouldn’t mix tabs and spaces, it makes live so much easier to stick with just one. 🙂

    Best regards,
