I gave the beginner presentation at the January 2014 meeting of Austin on Rails. I was pretty nervous, but I think it went pretty well, and was surprisingly fun. I’ve embedded the slides below, and I’ll add a few more resource links too.
A few notes
- Rubygems Guides is a really helpful resource. They cover all of the basics and a few of the advanced topics in gem-making, and are a great first stop for your questions about making gems.
- Railscast #245 – New Gem with Bundler is also a great walkthrough of using bundler to build your new gem.
- adventure-gem is the repository for the gem I made for the presentation.
- Austin On Rails – 28 January 2014 is the video that was made that night, if you feel like watching me talk about the presentation.
- Bonus: Jeff Felchner does the second talk about Using Rails Engines as an SOA Middle Ground. You can also check out his slides.
