Cut and Polish: A Guide to Crafting Gems

As I mentioned here earlier in the year, a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Ukraine and speaking at the RubyC conference in Kyiv. My talk was a run through of how to build gems, some of the tools that can help, and a few best practices.

The video of my session is now online, if you’re interested:

There’s also the slides with notes, if you prefer that.

One of the questions asked towards the end was about publishing private gems, which I’d not dealt with before. However, Darcy was quick to tweet that Gemfury looks like a promising solution for those scenarios.

Please let me know if you think I’ve missed any critical elements of building and publishing gems - or if you have any further questions.

And many thanks to the RubyC team for putting together the conference and inviting me to speak - I had a great time!
