Staying DRY: Laziness Through Code Libraries

Ideal for Commercial and Education audiences. Most of us are familiar with code libraries for Python, Ruby, JavaScript and so on. We install and use them to make our work in those languages easier and to help follow the principles of DRY programming (Don't Repeat Yourself). But, how many of us write our own? Writing your own custom libraries, tailored to your environment, can save you and your co-workers time and effort, as well as increase your code quality throughout standardization. This session will discuss the general concepts behind code libraries and using Bash and Ruby, as well as look at how to write, document and deploy them.
